Toronto CADORA is pleased to announce that Walter Zettl -- rider, trainer, coach, author and valued contributor to the evolution of the sport of dressage in Canada since 1981 -- will be inducted as "Builder" to the Toronto CADORA Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame is a perpetual tribute established as part of the club's 40th anniversary celebrations in 2009. It is designed to honour both past and/or present club members and distinguished non-members who have, in their own way, contributed to the rich tapestry of the sport of dressage in the Greater Toronto Area and beyond during the club’s history.
"We are very pleased to be able to honour Walter Zettl in this way," explains Dorothy McDonall, Toronto CADORA President and Hall of Fame sponsor. "His impact on the sport of dressage as author, coach and clinician while established in Southern Ontario has reached well beyond the club's boundaries and is worthy of this recognition. Even well into his 80s he continues to help riders at all levels achieve their dressage dreams."
Also being honoured at the banquet is Elizabeth Robinson, 2010 recipient of the Toni Thompson 'Spirit of Dressage' Award. Elizabeth is being recognized for her long-term volunteer efforts above and beyond the call of duty for Toronto CADORA and as Chef d'Equipe of Canada's paralympic dressage team.
Inductions and presentations will take place at the Toronto CADORA Hall of Fame Banquet, November 20 2010, at the Premiere Ballroom in Richmond Hill. The evening has a 1970s theme and will feature cocktails, a five-course meal, open bar, dancing and entertainment, a silent auction and, of course, the Hall of Fame induction.
Tickets are $80 per person and may be purchased online via PayPal or by cheque made out to Toronto CADORA and sent to Sue Pallotta, 2130 Reg Rd 6, RR 5 Sunderland ON, L0C 1H0. Inquiries may be made to email@example.com
“Both Elizabeth and Walter have had a major influence on dressage in our area and beyond," notes Dorothy, "and we are happy to be able to recognize their efforts in this way."
