Thank you to every one for a wonderful Day One R2C2018. The volunteers were hard working, the show office was hopping, and the horses bursting with energy thanks to the cool fall weather. The riders and horses looked lovely!
Hopefully everyone remembered coats and blankets, because the mornings have been chilly.

Before getting into the show results, the evening was something of a treat. Judges, TDs, show management, USDF Officials, and KDA Board of Director members were guests at the Welcome Reception at the USDF Headquarters & Museum. Riders and show organizers mingled with free food and drink. On Friday, KDA and the Vendors are hosting a Wine and Cheese Gathering with live music. This tasteful event is from 4:30 to 7 in Vendor Village. We encourage everyone to attend!
The wind made for an exciting day in the rings, frisky horse gave riders challenges to achieve good scores, but our riders did not disappoint! The day shinned with large portions of classes earning scores near or above the 65%.
