Responsible for the 8th birthday Groupon that started it all.
We can not thank you enough Sandy for believing in Rooster to be a good fit for Samuelle and to allow for them to excel as a team. You have provided a lifetime of stellar memories and opportunities...
*also grateful to Jim Farmer pictured next to Rooster for introducing and highly recommending Emily Farmer to us when we were looking for someone to take Sam to Vegas Nationals!
How can we formulate the extent of our gratitude in just a few words? Being referred to Emily in October 2021 by her uncle Jim Farmer, with one month to prepare and train for Nationals on a new horse: Idol of Kings, was a true blessing.
A match that was truly meant to be!
Thank you Melanie for having answered all of the questions (yes, the many!) we have had since Sam came home from the barn speaking a million words a minute saying someone saw an announcement on Instagram with Sam’s name on it stating she was the backstage golden ticket winner for the USHJA nationals in 2021, as our official invitation ended up in our junk mail folder!!! The life changing USHJA outreach program is your baby, providing a chance to small barns like ours and their young riders to compete in the finals amongst the best!
Such a dream! For ever grateful for this journey thanks to you!
They are way too old for this shit!
Plus they don't know what they are doing!!
But they put their whole heart into it.
So we'll keep hem.
(It's not like we can afford any real ones anyways;)
... Showing up to so many shows including flying to Vegas in support of Nationals!
... Thank you for the much valued support.
Sometimes grumpy at the task but always there and always proud! Thank you!
From "behind the scenes" (or behind the camera)...
I've still got a lot to learn in this new world, but I promise you,
I will keep supporting you in the best ways that I can or am able to. I am without the shadow of a doubt:
Your biggest fan.
You amaze me kid...
I was nowhere near as brave as you are at such a young age.
Keep on going.
You have always believed in her and supported her in every way possible.
She is your lucky grand daughter.
