All the riding slots for the Tina Drake Ride a Test are filled but auditing is FREE for CFD members. Come to Willingham Dressage in Chuluota on October 1st from 8 am until 4pm and enjoy another great educational event. Be There or Be Square!

We are adding a new feature in the E-News. Each month a Member is spotlighted in the "Did You Know..." section. Scroll down for a sneak peak.

We will miss the cancelled (for this year only) Hawaiian Shirt Fun Show but keep it on your calendar for next September.

Are you going to the Regionals? Send us a report on what you see and do. We would love to be there vicariously! 

Have you been showing or going to some fun clinic? Send a pic and a few words to cbulmer1@aol.com and I will put them in the newsletter. We all love to share those special moments with friends who understand us.

We know you don't want to brag but we would just love it if you would share a snippet of your world (horsey or non horsey) with us.  A short phone interview with a photo of you participating in your non-horse related activity. That's it. Do you have writing skills? Submit your own writeup or maybe nominate someone for a feature.  email carol with suggestions.

Here's a teaser for the inaugural column.

This familiar Member was a professional dancer. 
Who is this fab dancer? The a nswer and her fascinating story will be in October E-News.
