Articles: Side Saddle at the USET September 2009
What a great weekend! Although it rained on Saturday, it stopped long enough to run the USEF classes. It resumed just as Debbie Taylor and Keegan were having their championship photos taken by Bruce Scarborough. The fashion show and reception were a blast. Lots of participation and good stories. The weather was perfect on Sunday, sunny with a breeze. The turnout was great. The biggest Divisions were the Open Pleasure and the Open Equitation. Seven riders participated in the SSA Qualifying Equitation Class. Heidi Opdyke, the winner had a brilliant ride!
Well done ladies! I would like to thank all that participated as exhibitors, sponsors, vendors and volunteers. It could not happen without you. A special thanks goes to the Ladies of ISSO and the NEA, your support is invaluable. Finally, thanks to the BOD of Liberty Network, your tiredless effort over the last year made the event possible.
I am already securing a date for September 2010. More to come. I look forward to seeing you then.
