A Kickoff to a Fun-filled Weekend
This educational and fun-filled weekend will begin with the MSEDA business meeting at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 2 at the Lexington Hilton Downtown; this meeting is open to all MSEDA members. Next up is real talk on the state of eventing by legendary international event rider David O’Connor. After lunch, David will return and speak on the systematic training of the event horse and rider. His insight and knowledge on the sport of eventing is beyond measure; we hope you make it out to listen to this icon in person!
Rounding out the evening will be a fantastic dinner, silent auction and awards banquet, with music provided by local (fantastic!) band The Fever. After watching and awesome photo slide show and recognizing those of you who work and play so very hard, we expect everyone to strap on their dancing shoes and really let loose!

This entire weekend is dedicated to celebrating YOU, the MSEDA members who make all of this not only possible, but deeply fulfilling.
