We would like to thank all of our clients for their ongoing and valued support. We would not have the opportunity to train and show such great horses without the trust of our owners. We thank all of the people who have pitched in and helped us this year, past and present, whether it be at home, at shows or both; we couldn’t do it without you guys. And the support of our friends and family goes without saying. It’s no secret that taking a baby across the country to many shows isn’t easy, but many of our friends and family have pitched in and helped babysit little Alexis and made the impossible possible; we thank those who have, it means so much to us.
