Our History and Today Nurtured by a handful of Dressage pioneers during its inception in 1969, NODA has grown from a grass-roots organization into one with nationwide influence. NODA’s 300+ members represent a widespread demographic area and people of all ages. We include riders of every level who own or lease horses, have their horses in training or take occasional lessons on school horses. Their riding goals and NODA involvement vary with their available time and love of horses. Integrated within NODA’s membership are trainers, instructors, judges, technical delegates and international FEI competitors that provide educational support for the horse and rider. NODA was formed to promote and further interest in the understanding of dressage through education, active participation and support of local, regional, and national dressage activities. Today we are a US Dressage Federation Group Member Organization (GMO). NODA is one of the largest GMO’s in USDF Region 2 which consists of Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, West Virginia, & Wisconsin. NODA came into being mainly as an educational organization at a time when dressage was still largely a mystery in the Cleveland area (as it was in much of the United States). The initial formative meeting of NODA took place at Red Raider Camp in response to a letter written by Joan Rapp, with personalized notes exhorting people to give dressage a try. Red Raider Camp became a center of dressage interest by virtue of the influence of Emmy Temple, Suzanne Jones, Dale Lappert, Lynn Fry and Gail Patton. They, along with Joan Rapp, who became the founding president of NODA, were instructors at Red Raider at the time. The organization held early meetings both at Red Raider and the Chagrin Falls Library. Schooling Shows were held at area stables with one or two people running the show. They took “the box” of show supplies to the show site. Together with the judge, this skeleton crew managed the show with anywhere from 12 to 60 rides. Today NODA offers a popular Schooling Shows Series each year with Championship Show. Most of our schooling shows now have two or three competition rings, and often more than 120 rides! Recognized Shows NODA hosts and organizes two popular Recognized Shows each summer. They are certified by the U.S. Equestrian Federation and the U.S. Dressage Federation. The shows have three to four rings of competition and draw riders from around the United States.

Education NODA is an educational organization. We have sponsored many clinics and workshops. The first one was presented by Lockie Richards in the fall of 1969, followed by one given by Emmy Temple in the spring of 1971. Since then we have had many others including Hans Moeller, Bodo Hangan, Violet Hopkins, Jean Froisard, Jessica Ransenhausen, Carol Grant, Gabor Foltenyi, Terry Ciotti-Gallo and Major Anders Lindgren (NODA hosted five USDF Instructor Seminars with Major Lindgren in the early 1990s). During NODA’s 44 years, other educational programs have been held for members and non-members alike. NODA has sponsored USDF “L” Programs, USDF Adult Camps, the Region 2 USDF/Premier Dressage Adult Clinic with Walter Zettl, and USDF Instructor/Trainer Certification Program.


At NODA workshops and clinics, we’ve learned how to interpret and ride dressage tests (including the rider tests), create a musical freestyle, take care of our “show nerves” with sport psychology, fill volunteer positions such as tabulating or scribing at shows, breed a better sport horse, and improve our riding with the Alexander Technique, T’ai Chi and yoga. Lectures have focused on such topics as equine health, trailer safety, approved bits, classical dressage, saddle and tack fit, helmet safety, and horse nutrition. Awards To top off each busy year, NODA hosts an annual awards banquet. NODA offers year-end awards for scores earned in recognized and unrecognized (schooling) competition, as well as special awards and trophies with specific criteria.

Leadership Past presidents of NODA, under whose leadership all this has evolved, are Joan Rapp, Emmy Temple, Peter Nelson, John Bogert, Dagmar Zimmerman, Dianne Braden, Patti Ferris, Lisa Gorretta, Margaret McElhany, Susan Horst, Carey Smith, Cindy Gibbs, Karen Eisenhauer, Dale Lappert, Janice Lawrenz and Dee Liebenthal. Our thanks are given to all of the hardworking officers, Board members, and committee members who have served with them over the years. Volunteers Everything we do, shows, clinics, workshops, newsletter, website, awards banquet, silent auction, is organized and run by hardworking volunteers. We congratulate all NODA members past and present for their contributions, participation, and volunteer hours. You have helped make NODA the equestrian association it is today. Thank you! NODA Lifetime Achievement Award Initiated in 2011, this award recognizes and honors individuals who have devoted countless hours of service to NODA in the pursuit of excellence both to NODA and to our sport of Dressage. This award recognizes those individuals in our spotlight, in the trenches quietly just doing the work, the person you think of when something needs to be done, someone who would remember how it has been done in the past, or someone who served years doing our committee work. Recipients of the Lifetime Achievement Award helped to create the NODA we enjoy today. These are important people and should be remembered and honored. 2011 recipients: 2012 recipients: 2013 recipient: 2014 recipients: 2015 recipient: 2016 recipient: 2017 recipient: 2018 recipient:

Honoring Senior Dressage Riders and Horses The Dressage Foundation (www.DressageFoundation.org) has a unique honor for senior dressage riders and horses. The Century Club recognizes Dressage riders and horses whose combined age totals 100 years or more. Horse and rider perform a Dressage test of any level, at a Dressage show or event, and are scored by a Dressage judge or professional. Among the 125 horse/rider combinations nationwide who are members of the Century Club, are NODA members, Beverly Van Nieuwal and John Claridge (deceased).

Dressage is an approach to the training of the horse. It is not an end in itself, but rather a means to an end. The end is to produce a pleasant, relaxed horse; a horse free of resistance, which is supple, in balance, and which, as a result, moves with a minimum amount of strain and effort under the weight of the rider over any terrain, and who is easy to control. This applies to all horses regardless of their jobs or discipline. It does not matter how good you are … it matters if you have the passion! Come Join the FUN! www.NodaRider.org

I am long overdue in honoring him for 30 plus years of support and encouragement in my horse endeavors. Even before we were married, he promised to help me buy a horse someday when finances were better. Fifteen years and three children later, he fulfilled that promise and supported my purchase of a $500 ex polo pony, who turned out to be a gem of a first horse. He listened attentively as I droned on and on about horses and even came on trail rides, walking along side of us on foot. He made many visits to the barn with me and learned how not to be afraid of this huge animal. Even though he was intimidated, he handled my horse because he wanted to help me. He has been at all but one of my shows over the years and has photographed and videotaped hours of riding when I know he had better things to do with his time. He has talked me off the ledge when I felt inept and overwhelmed in my riding, and offered encouragement every step of the way. When I presented the idea of buying property and building a barn, he was there alongside of me. I shudder to think of the mistakes we almost made buying the wrong land. He had so much faith in my vision! I am not sure he should have trusted me as much as he did. There is no farm chore he will not do. He often gets up before me to clean stalls, feed and turn out the horses. He repairs broken fences, plows the drive, rakes the ring, improves the trails, spreads limestone, and does everything and anything that needs done. He told me he even enjoys it. Phew, I don’t know what I would do if he didn’t. I depend on him for all the heavy tasks I cannot do. He has encouraged me to travel overseas with my brother and holds down the fort. The place looks better than when I am here everyday! Years ago, he attempted to ride, but it was not part of his DNA, if you know what I mean. I would never have forgiven myself if he got hurt. He is quite content to be on the ground next to a horse or admiring his beauty from across the pasture. Three years ago, I asked if he could volunteer at the summer NODA show at Chagrin Valley Farms. I told him we would be checking people and horses in and directing them to park trailers. A few minutes in, he decided that it would be great to help people unload and take their tack to the stalls. He commandeered the golf cart and pitched in. Here was a man in his sixties, trekking back and forth for several hours in 90 degree heat carrying heavy loads. (He is in good shape because of all the physical work he has done on the farm over the years). He always goes above and beyond. He is organized and friendly, and competitors welcomed his help, along with the rest of the volunteer team. Up until this summer he had never driven the truck and trailer with a horse in it. He was happy to leave that to me. He would borrow it to haul mulch and lumber and help people move furniture, but if I was available, he wanted me to drive. Two months ago, I was recruited to be a last minute substitute demo rider for the “L” Program. Since I

was at the farm volunteering all day, I needed to ask him to bring my horse to me- a 40 minute drive from home. He had helped me load horses dozens of times over the years, and I knew he could do it. He never hesitated. He showed up exactly at the time he was supposed to and was very proud of himself. I was extremely proud of him too. He has come so far on this horse journey. I asked him to tell me if the farm is getting to be too much for him. He reassures me that he is happy to share this dream with me. The best part of the day for us is tucking the horses in at night. Tony gets lots of love and face rubbing from his human dad. They have a special bond. I hope you will consider Matt for your wonderful award. He truly has earned it, and I would love for him to receive recognition beyond my own flimsy attempts at showing my appreciation. With gratitude, Patti Valencic

Congratulations to all!
