What’s up Catalpa #5

Memorial Day Weekend schooling, Field Day Clinic, Ride-A -Test, and ODE are CANCELLED. We have had persistent rain for the last two weeks, and with predicated rain this week. We can not offer safe or reliable footing. We are beyond disappointed, but grateful for the volunteers who helped prep and volunteered for the event. Monies have not been cashed and will be returned in a timely fashion. Your patience, understanding and support is appreciated.

What’s Up #4: Ride-a-Test with Dressage Judge Kate Kostenbader

Saturday, May 29, 2021

USDF Dressage L Program Graduate, Bronze Medalist, riding instructor and competitor Kate Kostenbader with her horse Wildorado’s Serenade

Somewhat unrelated but important note: Due to footing concerns, XC schooling on Saturday May 29 will be limited to those with complete entries for the ODE on the 30th, or who have already communicated about also bringing a non-compete horse. Entry status will be checked at the gate. Now back to the dressage clinic info.

Need a little dressage polish before show day? Join Kate Kostenbader at Catalpa Corner Horse Park on Saturday, July 29 to fine tune your test! Together we can refine a few factors that really matter to your score, such as rider position and effectiveness, geometry and relaxation. You’ll leave our session feeling better prepared for your test and more confident. Kate will work with you and you will get your test back with comments. Cost is $30.00 for ½ hour session.

For information or to schedule, contact Kate directly at kostenbaderk@gmail.com.

Volunteers needed, May 29 and 30

Catalpa Corner is a buzz with activity prepping for our Memorial FUN Weekend with Open Schooling May 29 as well as Field Day Clinic with Camie Stockhausen. We are in the final planning stages for our ODE May 30th, and would like reach out to our horse community for a few volunteers.

All of our volunteers are fed with tasty meals/treats and will go home with CCCHT T shirt and hat as well as a coupon for further open schooling at the park for a day’s donation. We are in need of about 7 cross country jumps judges coordinated by Jay Stockhausen. Please reach out to him at ajstockhausen42@gmail.com if you can help for an afternoon. We are also looking for a dressage and stadium scribes, a golf cart runner and 1-2 check-in people for open schooling May 29th.

Please email Susan Brigham at catalpacorner@gmail.com if you can share your expertise! Thank you and we are so looking forward to seeing our old and new friends.
