sir alfred munning horse sale Austin Dressage Unlimited would like to thank its many, many volunteers, donors, and contributors. This organization has been very fortunate to have so many wonderful people supporting it. A club cannot survive without involvement from its members and friends, hard work and effort, time, funding, and volunteerism. The generosity of so many people is what has made ADU such a widespread success.
We cannot possibly name them all, as so many people have contributed in some way or another to the promotion of dressage education for our GMO. We apologize to those whose names may not appear. It does not mean that your help was not appreciated. We do appreciate it greatly! The following are lists of some who have donated the use of their homes, facilities, or gave their services as judges, speakers, moderators, presenters, demo riders, etc. at our many ADU dressage educational events. And the outpouring of generosity we always receive in donations for our Silent Auction fundraiser at our ADU Year End party. But our thanks go out to everyone who has been involved in Austin Dressage Unlimited.
