News You Can Use!

With the fall season around the corner (maybe??), Central Plains Dressage has an action packed calendar and we want everyone to be aware of the upcoming events!

Plan on being at the Ride-a-Test event on SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21 – 10:00 am – 2:00 pm @ Valley View in Stillwater. This is an exciting new event that allows riders the opportunity to practice a test, get immediate feedback, and even ride the test again to see how you improve.  All Ride-a-Test fees go directly to Central Plains Dressage.  Rides are scheduled on a casual first come first serve basis. Check in with the gate attendant and your name will be called. Don’t feel like riding? No problem! For $5 you can sit with Robin and get a “judge’s perspective” of what they are looking for in a perfect 10! 

Has your pony outgrown its show slinky? Have you moved up to a Shadbelly and no longer need your show coat? Bring all of your gently used gear to the USED TACK SALE on SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21 – 9:00 am – 12:00 PM @ Valley View in Stillwater. Depending on how large your equine hoarding ability may be, we have the option for you!  Proceeds from tack space fees go directly to Central Plains Dressage.

Option 1: Rent a space, bring a table and your items. SMALL AREA (8×8) $15.00; MEDIUM AREA (stall size) $25.00; LARE AREA (20×20) $40.00

Option 2: donate your clean & in good condition items to CPD
