Hello Everyone and Happy Spring!
It’s hard to believe that the 2017 Amateur Championship Winter Series is wrapping up. We’ve been blessed with beautiful horses and wonderful, talented riders. We’re happy to see many of our friends fulfilling their requirements for their Bronze, Silver and Gold Medals. Congratulations to all of you!
The grand finale of the Orlando Dressage 2017 Amateur Championship Winter Series, our Heidelberg Cup shows, is upon us. We welcome our judges for the weekend: Joan Maccartney, and Cristel Carsen. You may access the prize list here.
On Sunday during the lunch break, we will award our 2017 Orlando Dressage Amateur Champions and Reserve Champions. We’ll also award the Klaus Fraessdorf Continuing Potential Award (open to amateurs and professionals). This award is presented to the highest average of Second Level Test Three and any Third Level test earned during Heidelberg Cup 1. Please join us as we celebrate our wonderful amateurs! You're cordially invited to the luncheon under the covered pavilion on Sunday during the lunch break, where the Amateur Championships will be awarded. Great food, champagne punch, desserts and fun! And in the spirit of the Heidelberg Cup, German chocolate cake! Please join the celebration!
Orlando Dressage continues to strive to improve our shows, and in the process also give back to our community. Our Virtual Ribbon Program has been a great success! Many of you choose to select a virtual ribbon instead of a regular ribbon and place the virtual ribbon in our “Give Back to Our Community” jar. Each virtual ribbon is worth $2 then donated to a local charity. I am very happy to say that together over the last year, we have donated over $2000 for local charities. We will continue to offer virtual ribbons. Every show will have a local charity, who gives back completely to those they serve. The charity for the Heidelberg Cup is Boggy Creek Camp for serious ill children. Located in Eustis, Florida, Boggy Creek Camp has been helping serious ill children find joy and fun for over 20 years. There website is boggycreek.org
As always, thank you for your support. We are looking forward to another great show!
