Greetings from the President also on the NODA website. Thank you to all the competitors who came out to ride for the judges, and more. Many local professionals, adult amateurs, and Jr/YRs didn’t stop at competing -- they also rolled up their sleeves and helped! Our local competitors were instrumental in getting our platforms constructed, producing new artwork for our program, and manning and advising the show committee. They were also responsible for thousands of dollars in sponsorships and advertising.

Dee Liebenthal and Rens


ear Noda Members,

We are pleased and excited about how well the Recognized Shows went this year at Chagrin Valley Farms. Despite the heat and heavy Friday afternoon rain, the footing in the arenas held up well. A few things will need some improvement, and the Show Committee has already met for a review. We know what needs to be addressed for next year. Comments were for the most part positive, and we are confident that all the work that was put into the shows this year will make next year much easier.

Three cheers for BMCI and Kevin Bradbury’s team of experts. Scoring was easy and displayed for all to see in the office. Kevin arrived on Wednesday before the show and with a team of volunteers on Thursday we set up. We got started a little later than planned, but eventually it all came together. I hope we didn’t drive team Bradbury too crazy, and that they agree to come back again next year. Our officials were great. They were patient and tolerated the sweltering heat and mosquitos with good humor. We thank them for coming, being flexible, and working with us to schedule as many rides as was reasonable.

Thank you also to Chagrin Valley Farms. It had been nearly 20 years since we held a Recognized Show there, and it was a learning experience for all of us. Linda Joseph and her hard working staff were great. They are accustomed to the Hunter Jumper world of competition, so our needs, which are quite different, came as a bit of a surprise. Also, they were coming off of their involvement with the Hunter Jumper Classic, and had only four days to get the venue shipshape for Dressage. They rose to the occasion like the pros they are, and were amazing.

Any success achieved this year could not have been enjoyed without our dedicated Show Committee chaired by Niki Sackman, also NODA’s VP. An army of volunteers came out to support this undertaking. “Thank you” is not enough, so I hope everyone knows how important they were to the shows. Karen Eisenhauer-Shirring, Volunteer Coordinator extraordinaire for many years, recruited and recruited and recruited. We had plenty of help Saturday and Sunday; in fact we were packed The future of these shows will be built on the up and on our way home two hours after the success of this year. I know we can count on end of the show Sunday. our members, their families and friends, along with local businesses to continue and grow the Our success this year was also achieved due to support we had this year. Thank you the generosity of our Sponsors and everyone! Advertisers. Because there were many people behind this undertaking, many friends Next year, longtime Volunteer Coordinator of NODA also rallied to help ensure our Karen Eisenhauer-Shirring will be unavailable success. Please take note of all the area for the Recognized Shows. We are actively businesses that supported the show and looking for someone to fill her position. Karen whenever possible, return the favor and will help the new volunteer get started and will support their businesses. You can see lists of supply information and lists. Please contact our supporters on NODA’s Facebook page and her at if you are

interested in learning more about this position. It is with great fondness that we remember John Claridge, who passed away on July 15, 2015. John was a longtime member of NODA, and was NODA’s first Dressage Foundation Century Club member. We have included a reprint of an article that appeared in the Century Club News, January 2011. We hope to have an indepth article about John in next month’s issue. Please keep John’s wife Gay, also a longtime NODA member, in your thoughts. If you wish, you may remember John with a donation to the American Cancer Society, 2115 W. 38th St., Erie, PA 16503. We are looking for a chair for our Silent Auction to be held at the 2015 Awards Banquet. I know I announced last month that Janice Lawrenz was taking over the auction, but due to recent changes in her job she finds that she won’t be able to chair the committee. She will, however, be able to help. Please contact our member liaison, Kathy Kirchner, at if you would like to take charge of this important and fun part of the yearend banquet. 2015 is an election year for NODA, which means that all Executive Board positions are up for election this year. NODA’s President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary will be elected to start serving January 1st 2016. If you are interested in any of these positions, please contact Dale Lappert, our Parliamentarian, at There will be an open meeting in September (date TBD), and we will also take nominations from the floor at that time. Thank you once again for all your support this year. Dee Liebenthal, President

In Memory of NODA Member John Claridge Reprinted from The Dressage Foundation’s Century Club News , January 2011

John Claridge and Tic-Toc’s Century Ride John reports: After many years of serving our family as a “happy horse holder,” I succumbed to the old adage—if you can’t lick them, join them. So in 1993, while looking for a horse for myself, I was bombarded with all sorts of advice. A constant refrain was to stay away from chestnut mares; they are impossible! But contrary to all that conventional wisdom, I chose a chestnut mare off the track with the less than promising name of “Yellow Woman.” Although I somewhat doubted that precision might be one of her better qualities, she became Clockwork (more fondly known as Tic Toc). Initially it was my intention to have her trained as a hunter but navicular problems directed us into dressage. At this time there were still some thoroughbreds in the dressage ring, so it was hoped that she could handle herself reasonably well there. Considering her less than flashy gaits and my lack of experience, it’s been a good ride. NODA News 2015 page 16

As I think back over the years, it is the concept of teamwork that I have found most satisfying. In most athletic endeavors that older people pursue, e.g., golf, tennis, swimming, skiing, cycling, the effort is purely individual. In contrast, dressage requires one to accommodate his or her abilities to that of the horse. When that is done successfully, there is no better feeling. I am enjoying my outings with Tic Toc today as much as I ever have. We continue to enter clinics and shows. She has made my advancing years most enjoyable. I only hope I have done the same for her. John and Tic Toc’s Century ride was at the Grand Haven Stable in Jefferson, Ohio, not far from their home in Erie, Pennsylvania.
