I hope everyone is staying cool during these dog days of summer! Show season is picking up, beginning with a show at Equine Country on August 14. September through December will be busy for EDCTSA with shows and social events galore. Check the website and calendar frequently for updates.

The EDCTSA board would like to welcome Rachel Cessna as our new webmaster and newsletter editor. Please send news, events, and photos to her for inclusion in the monthly newsletter. You can find her email address on the website.
