I'm sure you must be surprised by my sports selections.

Musical Freestyle - Linda and Hito

We had a "Barn Opening" after our indoor was completed and these two provided us with entertainment. There was not a dry eye in the barn. Hito, an Andalusian stallion, was imported from Portugal by Bettina Drummond and retired with Linda (who was my classical dressage instructor). He was still able to do this in his mid 20s.

This is Karen. You have met Panache before. She has been doing side saddle exhibitions for over 10 years (at the Royal Winter and Kentucky Horse Park in addition to other venues)

Northampton Driving Competition

Kids and Ponies. Ariana and the Pone.

Walnut Hill Driving competition - Laurie, Andrea and Torie

Take me out to the ballgame - Daniela

Boating on the Erie Canal

Boating on Lake Ontario - our daughters and grandkids (thank you Topper)

Christy and Abbe

Eventing - Andrea and Huey

For pleasure in our own back yard - Winnie and me

You and Andrea make riding look good and easy. We were honored you rode the "Rate 2 Win" aka Winnie, and she was glad to have someone that wasn't a hack. Keep riding her lady, I'll take pics and be the groom boy. :-)
