Another one of those darn good pics…….

Debby and Dawn

Debby Sanguinetti was the previous owner of Fresno’s Plain Peppy (Fred).  Dawn Poston owns him now, and we all know how that’s worked out.  I love this picture of them together.

How proud am I of these two ladies and their great horses???

Intrepid Girls

Very, very proud, that’s how proud!!  After my making the difficult decision NOT to attend the Back to Basics Quarter Horse Show in Rancho Murieta, Jennifer Harden and Dawn Poston went without me, and the results were spectacular!  Dawn and Fred won the Amateur Cow Horse under both judges, and Jen and Jo Jo placed high in the Amateur Boxing and third under both judges in the HUGE amateur Ranch Riding.  Their was their very first show together.  It is so satisfying to see my riders go forth and SUCCEED.  Thanks so much to Kathy Torres for helping out where help was needed.

Touched and Honored

I am extremely honored. Even if for a short time, Chase (Very Smart Cow Pony) and I being in the Cowgirl Hall of Fame is beyond my dreams. My great little horse is the one who deserves this the most. Thank you, Beverly Sparrowk for honoring us in this way.

Weather Didn’t Slow Us Down!

On February 2, Kathy Torres and I gave a trail, ranch riding, and reining clinic in Livermore.  The storm the night before was one of the biggest of the year.  Yet the clinic came off beautifully.  This amazing rainbow seems to summarize the day.  Thanks to Andrea Hoeke for such a cool photo!  The participants from Clifford Horse Training were an intrepid bunch:  Kelly Saunders, Kensley Hennessey, Mei Mei Dorrance, Suzanne Dorrance, Alex Roberts (riding the amazing Jack), Jennifer Harden.  Thanks to all who attended.  Kathy and I plan to do it again!Rainbow over Clinic

Handing Over the GSVRHA gavel to Kathy Torres led to this great banquet surprise….

My heart is full. Ten years ago, I had an idea and a dream, as Kathy Torres described today. But in the very best of those dreams, I never thought the GSVRHA would become what it has. The WSVRHA is a nationally recognized entity and Ranch Horse Versatility is the fastest growing performance horse event. I am delighted to pass my dream on to Kathy Torres, and I am endlessly grateful to my most recent board, Andrea Pasek, Grace Davis, Jennifer Willa Harden, Kelly Norwood Saunders, Kathy Torres, Kimberly Schnittger, Cori Vowell Stevenson, Leslie Vitale. This group presented me with the most beautiful flowers I have EVER received, and a gorgeous leather engraved bag (there is a whole story there). I know our club will continue to grow and thrive. Can’t wait to see what’s next.
