Now you can ride in a Competition Freestyle Class judged by CFD's own Tina Drake "R". Competition rules are USEF/USDF rules. Exhibition rules are...to have fun music, fun costumes and to make merry and ride! This event supports  reedom Ride our local Therapeutic Riding Association. Check our their website:   http://www.freedomride.com and then come out for a family friendly few hours on Sunday May 22 at Noon to 3pm!
