Mid-South Dressage Academy USDF Show


The Mid-South Dressage Academy hosted its final USDF show of the season, the Turkey Trot show November 17-18, 2012. High score awards for Saturday were Vonna Read riding Walk On Air with a 70.893% in Adult/Amateur; Maggie Whisenhut riding O Kuhailan Mahus CJ with 80.000% in JR/ Young Rider; and Jacob Fletcher with a 69.600% in Open.  “Absolutely the cutest pair was Kathy Massey's granddaughter Caitlyn on Tuxes and Tails, with ribbons in her pig tails. She did Walk-Trot Equitation and Intro Test B,” commented Peggy Gaboury. Sunday’s high point rider was Maggie Whisenhut riding O Kuhailan Mahus CJ with 76.000% in JR/ Young Rider. A rising star in the eventing world, Little Rock, AR native Jacob Fletcher, brought his event horse The Prof to polish his dressage work.

Elizabeth Clifton, owner of Mid-South Dressage Academy, has a reputation for exceptional hospitality at her shows, and this one was no exception. The Crêpe Maker was on hand to make delicious luncheon entrée and dessert crêpes, as well as breakfast, for competitors and spectators. What yummy treats! For a closer look at their offerings, visit

There was also a demonstration of TheraPlate, a vibrating plate that helps a horse in several ways: increasing bone density, relieving joint problems, relieving pain, and relaxation. With people, the TheraPlate increases the effects of exercise. For more information, visit
