The 2017 New England Dressage Association (NEDA) Fall Symposium featured Olympic Gold and Silver medalist Carl Hester October 14-15 at Pineland Farms Equestrian Center in New Gloucester, Maine. Carl's only U.S. East Coast appearance in 2017, was sold out to over 2000 participants in less than 2 weeks. With over 100 videos submitted for consideration 14 lucky riders/horses were selected. HorseDaily's Mary Phelps, with Markel Insurance was a Gold Sponsor. In addition as an ambassador for the Equestrian Aid Foundation, and thanks to Carl's generosity, we raised over $7,000, with Valego's Shoe as the top selling item.
Carl's rock star status is unprecedented in the equestrian world, and for 2 days he worled with a group of horses and riders sharing his wealth of knowledge. We managed to capture some of it here.
