Make it a red letter day on your calendar so you don't miss this always popular educational event!

This year we look forward to adding vendors for a small trade fair. We are auditor friendly with a PA system so you do not miss any helpful instructions and the covered arena keeps us cool. Enjoy a Red Light Therapy demonstration by Liane after munching down a lunch provided by our sponsor Cavalor.

 You'll improve your own riding with the down-to- earth advice and positive encouragement from one of the best clinicians in the United States.

The above picture is of Mary Cayley of Adagio Equestrian Center (sponsor of the hospitality table) with Sharon demonstrating proper use of the leg aids. The pictures from the clinic were take by Photosbyliane who supported the CFD clinic with pictures and table in the vendor area. Liane also is the local Redlight Therapy representative/clinician for the Central Florida area.

Hurricane  Preparedness 
Summertime in Florida means the Three H's:
Heat, Humidity and Hurricanes.

Put a little time and thought into preparing yourself and your horses in case we have another summer like 2005.
The short list for prep includes grain & hay (and way to keep them dry), clean water (access and storage without electricity)), veterinary supplies (when the vet can't get to you), horse id tag (fences and trees fall down) or a plan for evacuation.
