    The Alamo Dressage Summer Social and Used Tack Sale Extravaganza is less than 2 weeks away! The sale will be incredible with close to 500 quality items! WOW! Additionally, Iron Horse Trading Company will be there with a trailer full of equestrian-inspired goods! Think about buying those Christmas gifts. Susan McGinnis will bring her saddle-fitting expertise and a trailer full of saddles and other tack.

    IN LIGHT OF THE EXTRAORDINARY HEAT WE ARE EXPERIENCING, THE EVENT HAS BEEN RELOCATED TO THE HAMPTON INN IN BULVERDE AT 499 SINGING OAKS, SPRING BRANCH, TX 78070. We will have a spacious, AIR CONDITIONED banquet room to house all the tack items and tables for dining and catching up with friends.

    The Social will provide a delicious BBQ lunch served buffet-style. Water and sodas will be provided. We ask that you bring a side dish or dessert with a serving utensil. Alcoholic beverages will not be allowed due to TABC rules.

    What are you waiting for??? What could be more fun than shopping, eating, and talking about horses? Register today on the Alamo Dressage Association website! A good headcount will help us know how much BBQ to order and how many dining tables we need.

    Bring your appetite and cash, checkbook, or credit card!

    If you have let others know about this event that may not be on our mailing list, please forward this email with the location change to them.

    ADA past president, past USDF Region 9 Director, Region 9 Horseperson of the Year, USEF "r" Dressage judge, rider, breeder, rancher, quilter and avid fisherwoman, Kat Kyle passed away on December 9th.  If you knew Kat you know what a wonderful person she was and the time she dedicated to dressage in our Region.  I remember spending afternoons at her Bandera ranch putting together and editing the Region 9 omnibus and other projects.  Kat and her late husband, Dick, hosted many ADA events at her ranch as well.   Many of us (myself included) rode down center line towards Kat, and though she did not give points away in her  judging, she was always fair with great feedback. 

    Kat is survived by current husband, Scott Smith.  More details to follow with her obituary and memorial services which will be held in the spring.  Follow the funeral home website for updates:
