Horse By Horse Bit Clinic With Stephanie Brown-Beamer Review...

Oct 1, 2021

ADS was thrilled to host a Horse By Horse Bit and Bridle Fitting Clinic with Stephanie Brown-Beamer over the weekend of September 25-26.  It was held at the beautiful Valley View Farm, and big thank you to Patty Hale and barn family for your hospitality.  This could not have been possible without our many volunteers that donated time, food, items, and much more to make this clinic happen.  Thank you to our participants who were as excited about this clinic as I was.  Special thank you to USDF for graciously funding a GMO Education Initiative grant to help support this event. The bit clinic was amazing! It was such a wonderful educational experience as Stephanie thoughtfully and thoroughly explained the different aspects of the horse’s mouth, each bit, bridle fit, and how it all...

Member Spotlight: Anne Tursky

Aug 18, 2021

This month’s Member Spotlight features long time ADS member and supporter, Anne Tursky!  She has been a member of the board for the last year and has made a wonderful contribution to the sport of dressage. Let’s get to know Anne! Tell us a little about yourself. I’ve been “horse crazy” since I was a little girl.  Since I had no access to the real thing, I would pretend that the family dog was a horse.  Fortunately Fred was all too happy to stand patiently while I picked out his hooves (aka paws) and saddle him with a dish towel.  My parents eventually gave in to my dreams and bought me a pony…and I have never looked back. Tell us about your horse(s).  I have 3 horses that I have bred and trained.  Harry...

Jul 12, 2021

ADS is very excited to announce our newest board member, Aislin Falasco!  We created a junior board member role as we would love to have input from our junior riders on shows and events as well as where they see this GMO going in the coming years.  Aislin reached out to the board and inquired about a junior role, and we love seeing our future leaders interested in being a part of what we do.  We hope to continue developing this position and see other junior riders fill this role in the future! Let’s get to know Aislin! Tell us a little about yourself. My name is Aislin Falasco. I am 15 years old. I’ve been riding competitive dressage for about 4 years.
