October Region 5 Update
I hope everyone has a successful Regional Championship competition if you’ve attended one of the nine Regional Championships this year! I was so excited to have attended 3 different Regional Championships this year, including our own Region 5 Championships, but unfortunately Covid caught up with me and kept me home from Santa Fe this year. Still, it’s always fantastic to watch the success of our competitors and the dedication to our sport.
The USDF convention is just around the corner and we are finally back in person! Join us in Lexington, Kentucky, the home of USDF, the US Dressage Finals, the United States Equestrian Federation and many amazing thoroughbred farms. Be sure to check the convention schedule and attend the Region 5 meetings, along with the Board of Governors and learn more about how your USDF works. The information and schedule will be posted at www.usdf.org/Convention/. Our first regional meeting will be virtual and will be held in November. We’ll touch on a few points we covered at our July regional meeting and talk a bit about the convention agenda as well. For more Region 5 news
