ANNUAL RDDA FUNDRAISER SUPPER
Back by popular demand!!! ...
Last year 100 tickets were sold and $1,300 was raised to help pay for a dressage ring and trailer (used to haul the dressage ring to shows). This year we have rented a location for the supper where there will be more room to visit ...as well as a cash bar, game rooms with darts, shuffleboard and pool table. There will be door prizes, a silent auction and RDDA merchandise samples available for pre-purchase.
Proceeds this year will go towards a sound system as well as helping to pay for expenses at shows – facility rental, judge fees & accomodation, show registration fees ...to name a few. (Depending on the size of show ... costs can run anywhere from $5,000 to $10,000). Also plans are to bring in clinicians to help improve both riders and horses. Fundraising will help with clinician fees, travel expenses & clinician accommodations. (The total cost of a clinic can run anywhere from $2,000 to $4,000).
If you would like to become a RDDA Sponsor as well ... please see our Sponsorship page at: http://www.reginadistrictdressage.ca/2014-sponsorship.html. Your support really does help!!!

Becoming a Thinking Rider
Is your most effective riding aid (your brain) not providing you with desired results? You will learn targeted visualization, how to avoid performance-disrupting mental traps, communicate more effectively with your horse, and manage your self talk and emotional state. Your training will take on a new, interesting dimension that will become part of your daily routine.
Developing a High Performance Mind
Are you ready to expand your comfort zone? Take your ride, your performance to a new height? Becoming tougher under pressure and challenging your current skill level are both very learnable skills. You’ll find these skills just as valuable in your life as your riding. You will learn how to stay focused and calm in the clutch, recovery strategies to rebound quickly from errors, winning concentration techniques and how to perform in and out of “the zone”.
