Dressage in the Sierra
- Hi all,Dressage in the Sierra is right around the corner. Thanks to everyone who has sponsored the show. There is still time to be a sponsor if you get it in the mail this week. You can download the forms from the SNC-CDS website. This is a very expensive show to put on so every little bit helps.We are still in need of volunteers. Contact Jennifer Smith at jsmith@.... If you are showing a great way for you to help out is by helping set up the rings on Friday and tearing everything down on Sunday. We will start setting up the rings on Friday at noon. The more people we have the quicker it goes. The quicker we get it set up the sooner we get to ride. So meke it a point to be in the indoor at noon on Friday!!!!I am having trouble finding a farrier to be on call for the show. We used Jerry Bailey last year but I haven't been able to get a hold of him. If any one knows how to get a hold of him please let me know. If anyone knows of a farrier that might be interested in being on call please let me know.Thanks everyone for all of your help and support. Looking forward to having a great show.Wendy

Dear Friends of Dressage,
Dressage in the Sierra is one of the premier shows of the California Dressage Society’s circuit. This annual event draws competitors from throughout the region to ride under internationally rated judges. As one of the top equestrian events in Nevada, it offers a perfect venue to showcase Reno area businesses and products to serious equestrians.
Our organization, the Sierra Nevada Chapter of the California Dressage Society, is affiliated with the United States Dressage Federation. It is a volunteer group whose members spend countless hours working to ensure the quality of this event. Each year, its success depends on the support and patronage of our community. Sponsorships from chapter members, their families and friends, and local professionals and businesses are essential to maintaining the show’s tradition of excellence.
Each sponsorship, from the smallest to the largest, is greatly appreciated. Please take a moment to look at the attached list of sponsorship opportunities and select the one that best meets your needs. Your support will be recognized in event materials, mailings, and the chapter newsletter, as well as at the show. Funds raised help us to attract top-notch competitors through prizes, cash awards, trophies and first-rate facilities.
For additional information about sponsorships, please contact Victoria Myer 775-378-7403 or Beth Curle 775-849-0136. If you are unable to be a sponsor at this time, please consider helping us secure a donation or a prize suitable for an award. Your involvement ensures that we can continue to showcase the art of dressage in northern Nevada.
Thank you for your generosity,
Members of the Sierra Nevada Chapter, California Dressage Society

I hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend celebrating our country's independence. The weather was perfect for every outdoor activity.
Our annual Dressage in the Sierra show is just 2 weeks away and the closing date is Friday, July 9th . Once Connie Davenport gets settled from her days at the Pebble Beach show, we'll have a better idea of the number of entries and the financial condition of this show. We continue to hear that shows are down 20% and given the number of emails I receive announcing show deadline extensions and actual show cancelations, that number is probably low. Working locally, the SNC Board is continually review each show's operation to find opportunities to reduce our overall expenses.
Chapter members Jennifer and Ray Mair will be hosting our judge Louise Koch in their home for the duration of the Dressage in the Sierra show, a savings to the chapter of over $500. If you see Jennifer or Ray at the show, please extend a thank you to them.
And you could help too. We are transitioning back to the days when the lunch, snacks, and beverages for the show officials were supplied by the chapter members as a contribution to the success of the show. If you are willing to bring lunch, beverages, and snacks for the show officals (6-8 people) for one day at either the July or August show, please contact me at 775-849-0136 or curle@....
Maybe you noticed that no one solicited you for a donation for this show? It was voted on at our last chapter meeting to fore-go any solicitation due to the downturn of the economy. As a result of the elimination of show sponsors, a show program will not be produced for this show either - another show expense eliminated.
As part of our "Breakfast on the Green" component of our Dressage in the Sierra show, we are looking for two volunteers to assist with the food portion of the dressage shows. We need someone to purchase, and deliver continental breakfast type food and beverages for Saturday or Sunday morning of Dressage in the Sierra, July 18-19th. It is our intension to keep is simple with simple pastries, bagels, fruit, etc and coffee for competitors, show officials, and spectators. Please contact me at 775-849-0136 or curle@... if you are willing to host either of these mornings.
