***NEW*** Notes from the Board (December)

Happy Holidays to All from the board of CDCTA

It is now time to think back and evaluate what everyone did in 2014. Did you get to accomplish the goals that you had set to achieve in 2014? Are you and your horse ready to move up? Do you need to stay where you are and confirm that level or jumping height? Maybe you feel there are a few holes in your training that need to be worked on. Remember it is not a race. Someone once said it takes at least 2 lifetimes to learn how to ride. As you evaluate yourself make sure your plans include your club. Maybe not only as a participant but, also as a volunteer.

2 new items for 2015. You will now need to have 4 volunteer hrs. to be eligible for year-end awards, and 8 hrs. to be considered for a team. DON’T PANIC. These commitments can be met by ay person who designates that the hrs. are for you. These forms will be available on the website before our first event of 2015.

Thanks for being a member
