10, 2018 NODA Schooling Dressage Show at
Sweetwater Equestrian Center
The Sweetwater show was a great success this year with many riders having super tests. The forecast was for a rainy, stormy day but luckily the rain held off for most of the day. Many thanks to Kristi Folz and the Sweetwater team for having the facility ready for us and for being available all day to trouble shoot any issues and for sponsoring a special treat for the top scoring junior/young rider at our show!
Thanks to our two judges- Clara Etzel “L” graduate with distinction who traveled from Michigan and Lisa Campbell “R” judge who flew in from North Carolina. Both judges had very nice compliments about our riders, volunteers, NODA and Sweetwater! It is so nice to hear judges value all that we do with schooling shows and we appreciate their dedication and thoughtful feedback.
As always we love and treasure all of our schooling show volunteers. Many thanks to the ring set up crew of: Sue Hines, Heidi Miller, Victoria Patterson-Pirko and Linda Toll for braving the rain on Saturday morning. Thanks to show crew : Susan Baker, Jerry Chewy, Jen Cooper, Josephine Cooper, Melissa Groh, Jordan Jacques, Margaret Kaufman, Patty Keim, Linda McGall, Heidi Miller, Kristeen Miller, Allison Morris, Jacqueline Seagle, Laura Stepic, Amy Walker, Pam White, and Taya Workum-Byers. And finally, thanks to those who stuck around after the show to tear the ring down: Ariel Broadkey, Jen Cooper, Josephine Cooper, Sarah Freeman, Patty Keim, Heidi Miller, and Victoria Patterson-Pirko.
Your schooling show team of Sally Burton, Niki Sackman and Kirsten Thomas appreciate your support and look forward to our July show!

13, 2018 NODA Schooling Dressage Show at
Chagrin Valley Farms
As all May shows tend to be, this
year was wet, raining and did I say wet? We are so thankful for
all of our very flexible competitors who put up with rain delay,
schedule changes and “ride whenever you want outside”
reminders! Special thanks to our fantastic judges, Amy Rothe-Heiter and Jennifer Roth, who were both gracious,
accommodating and willing to do what it took to keep the show
Thank you to Chagrin Valley Farms, our NODA Board members led by President, Barb Soukup, and our wonderful schooling show staff, Sally Burton, Niki Sackman and Kirsten Thomas.
