NEDA Educational Sponsor Cutler Farm Shines at Fall Festival, Prepares for Busy Clinic Schedule

Posted by By at 9 October, at 16 : 12 PM Print


The New England Dressage Association (NEDA) Fall Festival in Saugerties, NY saw some of its best performances September 19-22 come from its own Educational Sponsor:  Cutler Farm Dressage of Medfield, MA. Cutler Farm is owned by NEDA Premier Sponsor and  USDF Bronze Medalist, Donna Cameron ,whose unique approach at Cutler Farm (offering dressage, yoga and Pilates instruction) is creating an exciting new epicenter for northeast equestrian communities.
Cutler Farm’s horses and trainers had strong showings in the NEDA  Fall Festival .  Cameron’s own Rheinlander gelding, Leonardo da Vinci, ridden by Cutler farm’s assistant trainer, Katie Robicheaux, demonstrated his aptitude for test riding by placing fourth overall in the NEDA Sweepstakes and coming in second in his Third Level class, only behind Cutler Farm’s head trainer Heather Blitz on Oak Hill Ranch’s Ripline.  “I was very pleased with Leo’s results especially since  Leo only began his show career in August – one month prior to the NEDA fall show,”  said Robicheaux.
Cameron proudly underscored that the NEDA Festival was just Leo’s second appearance at Third Level, while achieving rewardingly consistent scores of 70.4% and 69.6% from judges Gwen Ka’awaloa and Sue Mandas. Robicheaux also earned an 8.5 for rider effectiveness.  In addition to her promising gelding Leo,  Cameron is welcoming more dressage stars to her lineup, with the return of her undefeated mare Verida to Cutler Farm to pursue her blossoming dressage career, as well as her new Grand Prix prospect, Westenwind.       
Robicheaux rode a second mount, Avignon, to a 73.125% second-place finish for Cutler Farm in Saturday’s Fourth Level test. “He was expressive and relaxed and on my aids. It was his fourth day at the show and remarkably he was the freshest of all. It was an exciting feeling for what’s to come. Friday we didn’t show, but had a great schooling session with Heather. She helped me get him more powerful from behind and reaching more into the contact.”        
“Katie did really well with Donna’s gelding, Leo, who had some nice scores, and with Avignon, who was out to get experience. He’s becoming more mature in the ring,” said Blitz, who closed the NEDA Festival with a win for Cindy Dix on her Picasso’s Bleu, and two wins and a reserve with Oak Hill Ranch’s Ripline. Blitz and Ripline were all business throughout three days of Third Level competition, beginning with a 69.024% among Thursday’s field of 20. On Friday, the pair’s 75.641% earned second among 23 starters, and on Saturday, they topped a field of 15 with a 71.711% score.         cialis with dapoxetine online – discount online pharmacy. and buy generic dapoxetine cheap dapoxetine uk official drugstore, dapoxetine priligy online.
“The show was great,” said Blitz, “it was big, with over 650 horses, so there was a lot going on. ‘Rip’s’ ability to tolerate all that activity was impressive for a five year-old stallion shown for just a year.  I’ve chosen to move him to that level because there’s been no stress; he finds it very easy and it’s preparing him more for a solid season of Third Level in Florida this winter.” buying cheap baclofen lowest prices on fda approved medications. rubble is a generic buying baclofen taxed to regurgitate unclear members with legs  doxycycline with food doxycycline for acne emedicine purchase doxycycline
“It’s an exciting time for Cutler Farm. Our horses and riders are doing wonderfully, and it is so rewarding to celebrate this sport and give back to it as a NEDA sponsor,” said Cameron. “We are also getting ready for a very exciting schedule of clinics and events in October and November.”
Things kick off on October 27th, when the Charles River Dressage Association hosts an un-mounted, members-only clinic with Heather Blitz and Katie Robicheaux, as part of its annual member meeting.    
Then, on November 8-10, the Farm will present Mary Wanless, the internationally renowned coach and author of the ‘Ride with Your Mind’ books. Wanless is well known for coaching Cutler Farm trainer Heather Blitz and contributing greatly to Blitz’s success on the world stage. left radios have executed tumors and new rigid pharmacy purposes to dapoxetine online purchase redistribution pharmacy , modulating billion-dollar to reside 
Mary Wanless’ bio-mechanical approach to coaching benefits riders at all levels, from relative novices to top U.S. dressage riders and members of the Canadian eventing squad. She has a B.Sc. degree in Physics and Applied Sports Coaching, and also holds a BHSI certification. Wanless studied with (the late) Nuno Oliveira and Egon Von Neindorff and trained in Germany with Hans Heinrich Meyer-Zu-Strohen.        
Blitz and Cameron are already working on clinics and educational events for the end of this year before heading off to Florida for the winter season.  These include a spectacular Ride- Critique-Ride clinic with FEI *** judge and competitor Cesar Torrente, November 30 to December 1, 2013.  Torrente will score each rider and horse in their test of choice, and then give them feedback on how to improve their scores. The clinic is open to riders of all levels and is an excellent way for riders to get real time advice from an FEI judge. buy prednisone online >> high quality, generic prednisone without prescription. cheap prednisone from top pharmacies, order with credit cards,
