NODA’s open meeting was held on September 21st at Fieldstone Farms TRC. We had a nice session of yoga, a tour of the facility, dinner and a short meeting. There were no additional nominations from the floor for the upcoming election; however, we do have a few new members interested in getting involved. My mantra will continue to be that we must have new people with new ideas to continue to grow into the future. Our organization must figure out new ways to deliver on its mission, ways that take into account the technology and the needs of our members today and in the future. We have a record number of members and a lower than ever representation of that membership at our schooling shows and our educational events. We need our members to get involved. We need you to get involved. If you are a professional, please encourage your students to get involved.

seems to be very little interest. We will have to try it again, using a different approach. I wonder whether people ignore requests for information because there are so many. Is the general population is just numb? How do we reach you for your opinion? NODA is looking for a member to act as the liaison or representative for Western Dressage to the board and the NODA membership. If you are interested please contact Kathy Kirchner, Ballots for the upcoming election will be mailed in a few weeks. Watch your mailbox for your ballot and return it with your choices as soon as you can. Thank you all for supporting NODA.

Dee Liebenthal, President

I, along with the NODA Board, thought that there would be a huge response to our recent survey on interest in a NODA sponsored USDF “L” Program. The survey was put on Facebook, on our website, and in the September newsletter. Judging from the lack of response, there

USDF Mourns the Loss of 2015 Lifetime Achievement Award Winner Lloyd Landkamer


exington, KY (September 28, 2015) The United States Dressage Federation is sad to report that 2015 USDF Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient Lloyd Landkamer passed away Friday, September 5. Lloyd's passing will leave a sizeable void in the dressage and paraequestrian communities, both nationally and internationally. Throughout the years, Lloyd has served as a manager, secretary, technical delegate, and FEI steward for a number of national and international competitions. He is best known for serving as manager of the dressage and para-equestrian competitions at the 2010 World Equestrian Games, USEF Festival of Champions, USEF Young Horse Championships, the Global NODA News 2015 page 6

Dressage Festival, numerous Great American/USDF Regional Championships, and most recently the US Dressage Finals. In addition to being a USEF 'R' Technical Delegate, C1 and C2 'R' Steward, and FEI Level 3 Steward, Lloyd was also the consummate volunteer. Throughout the years, Lloyd has served on the USDF Executive Board, USEF Dressage Committee, USEF Para Technical Committee and numerous other USEF and USDF committees. In addition to being named 2002 USDF Volunteer of the Year, earning his USDF Bronze Medal, and being recognized nationally for his success in dressage sport horse breeding, Lloyd has been named the recipient of the 2015 USDF Lifetime Achievement Award. This award is presented to longtime USDF members who have shown a lifetime of dedication to the organization through volunteering and developing programs, projects, and committees that have contributed to USDF's mission. The 2015 Lifetime Achievement Award recognition will take place at the 2015 Adequan/USDF Annual Convention in Las Vegas, in December. Lloyd will also be featured with other recipients in the Roemer Foundation/USDF Hall of Fame, Landkamer located at the USDF National Education Center in Lexington, KY. (Continued on Page 9)

(continued from p. 6)

As we all remember our friend and colleague, USDF President George Williams stated, "The dressage community has lost a special friend, someone who put his heart and soul into our sport. Well known as a show manager of a number of top competitions in the country, Lloyd is perhaps not as well known for how generous he was behind the scenes. He as an enthusiastic volunteer on numerous committees for USEF, USDF, and from the beginning Para-Equestrian Dressage, as well as serving on the USDF Executive Board as the Region 4 Director. Lloyd was a class act and will be missed by all. I think one thing that made Lloyd so special, and says so much about him, is how so many of us feel we have lost a personal friend." In lieu of flowers, donations in Lloyd's memory can be made to The American Cancer Society, 1-800-227-2345, P.O. Box 22718 Oklahoma City, OK 73123-1718 for Colon Cancer Research.
