Wanted to write and wish everyone a very Happy Holiday season. Things have been going really well here and I have so much to be thankful for in my life. Wistar is such a blessing to me and he has been absolutely outstanding these past two months. We recently finished a clinic with Janet Brown and I ran through the Grand Prix for the first time. He scored a 67% and we worked on many movements there after that could easily go from 6's to 7's or 7's to 8's. His piaffe and passage are getting so strong I am very excited for his debut in CA this coming March. We will continue to focus on strength building and health for the coming months. I will be leaving in February and will be down south for quite a few months this time. Thanks to all of my fabulous sponsors and all of you that have supported me these last couple of years. We have a really solid financial base to get us started in CA for 2008
One huge benefit financially this year is that the USET Festival of Champions/Olympic Trials will be held in San Juan Capistrano, CA this year as opposed to Gladstone, NJ where we attended in 2005 and 2006. This will allow the money we currently have to go further and help fund the training aspect more thoroughly. If any one is interested in supporting Wistar and I please feel free to contact me on our website www.summervalefarm.com. Your donation is now tax deductible when given to the 501c3 "Assured Steps" and earmarked for Jennifer and Wistar.
Many blessings to you and your family and have a wonderful Christmas!
Give your horse a treat for me and I will post again in February before I head off.
