NPR interviews our very own Sara Beth Cutter on Dressage in Hawaii

You don’t usually associate Hawai‘i with horses, but they have been in Hawai‘i for a long time. Today we speak with Sara Beth Cutter, a horse enthusiast and dressage trainer, which is a highly skilled style of horseback riding performed in competitions. She and her horse 'Reg' go through their paces with the Aloha State Dressage Society and their first show this year will be April 9 & 10 at Mauna Wili Farms. 

Intro Music: Juste Quelqu’un de Bien by Enzo Enzo
Outro Music: Quiet Corners and Empty Spaces by The Jayhawks

Looking for Potential Sponsors

ASDS is looking for your support through sponsorship. Your sponsorship will allow us to continue as an organization to provide shows in Hawaii that riders can be nationally ranked in, which we otherwise wouldn't be able to do. Sponsorship is $25 a class and tax deductable. The sponsor will be announced for each class and promoted throughout the show. We look forward to hearing from you and truly appreciate all your help and support! For more details please read a Letter from Our Treasurer (pdf) >>
