A special "Thank You" goes out to Sara Dzimlankis, and the FVSU Equestrian team for their efforts in assisting with the CDE. Thank you as well to Ms. Holly Anderson for providing some of the animals, Ms. Christina Sanders for assistance with registration and to the many ag teachers who assisted as officials, bus drivers and group leaders.

Finally, if you have comments or feedback about the CDE, please feel free to contact me. As many of you know, this was our first attempt at coordinating and conducting an exclusive FFA horse evaluation CDE. Our participation numbers were larger than any in recent memory, and we tried a new facility. We are always working to make sure we put together a product that we and you can be proud to be part of. You can help insure that happens by sharing any productive feedback if you have it.
