A very huge thank you to all of the people who helped with the last triple star Chapter show for the season and the Chapter hosted CDS Southern RAAC and the Southern Junior Championships. It takes a village to handle all of the show needs and a village showed up – out of 8 Southern Region Chapters, six were represented in the volunteer pool. No matter how long or how short someone helped, it mattered as much like a puzzle, all of the pieces are important to the final product. There were 12 TEV chapter members – Carmen Wernimont, Carol Tice, Cindy Hancock, Cyndi Willis, Diana Muravez, Elaine Hamilton, Inge Schuler, Lorraine Heath, Paula Nilsson, Regina Antonioli, Sailor Boden and Sandy Bike. There were 11 family, friends and students of TEV & IC members – Teri Alford, Selena Wang, Sarah Eaton, Salma Rodriguez, Lexi Heine, Heidi Little, Cristal Najera, Christopher Catheline, Bengt Nilsson and Brett Boden along with Kaiya Chacon. We had competitors in the show helping in between their ride times – Amanda Johnson (PO), Kim Hudson-Watts (PO), Lynda Palmer (PV), Joanne Irish (PV), Julie Ramstead (PV), Julie Unvert (PV), Terry Griggs (PV) and Ryder Mosqueda (IC). Other CDS members, who were not competing at these shows, were kind enough to volunteer their time – Sage and Lavinia Chacon (IC), Carrie Underwood (SD), Kristin Young (SJC), Marcy Levatino (SJC), Pam Tarrel (SD) and Sarah Pinney (SD). A huge thanks to our staff – Regina Antonioli – show manager, Diana Muravez – show secretary, Steve Apmadoc – announcer, Denise Weimers – scorer and set-up, Elaine Hamilton & Rene Frilot – awards, Dominique Estrada – head ring steward and set-up, Sarah Mosqueda – Junior awards and trophies. There are not enough words to express our thanks!

Babs Boruch was our Chapter representative at the CDS Adult Amateur clinic. She had a wonderful time and wrote about it thusly:
“A big thank you to Melissa Creswick, CDS, TEV, W Farms and Nicole Bhathal for organizing such a wonderful clinic! What a great group of riders we had as well! The entire weekend was a positive experience and learning from Melissa was a real treat. I loved how engaged and motivated she is to bring out the best in each horse/rider combo. She is able to truly understand what works and doesn’t work for each individual horse and rider. And very quickly figured out how I learn best and how my horse understands things clearly. I had several ‘aha’ moments during my lessons and her evaluation of my riding, my horse and our learning moments was spot on. This made the whole learning process even more effective. It was great to be able to ride with such an experienced, knowledgeable horse lady who brought both her experience as a judge, trainer and rider to the table. The weekend was a successful, fun learning experience for me and my horse! Thanks again to everyone who made this clinic possible for all of us to enjoy, make new friends and learn from the expert. California weather, wonderful hostess, beautiful facility, welcoming atmosphere, well organized, great fellow riders, beautiful horses and a top clinician…..what else can an Adult Amateur rider ask for! ”
