USDF Region 9 Teaching Excellence Award
Submitted on 10/26/2014 to The Dressage Foundation
GAIG/USDF Region 9 Championships and Southwest Dressage Championships and Houston Dressage Society (HDS) Autumn Classic held Oct. 9-12 at the Great Southwest Equestrian Center in Katy, Texas, is a favorite for USDF Region 9 members from Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Texas.
Fran Dearing-Kehr was awarded the USDF Region 9 Teaching Excellence Award from the Dressage Foundation at the show. This award is unique to Region 9, awarded to a USDF Region 9 member who is also a dressage teacher who adheres to sound principles with a reputation for honesty, integrity and community service. The $5,000 grant will help defray expenses for the trainer to travel to South Florida during the winter show season to train with Pam Goodrich.
Fran said it’s refreshing that Region 9 puts so much emphasis on excellence in teaching to award a grant.
