Came home tonite to find a large envelope from Lisa Thomas, Area VIII, in the mailbox addressed to Bev.
Beverly and Mood Indigo finished with the 5th highest point total in all of USEA Area VIII in Beginner Novice, Adult Amateur, for the 2009 season. WOW!!! (Especially since she lives two hours from Team CEO, driving four hours round trip to come ride with us, frequently on work nights!)
It’s a particularly poignant award, as 2009 will be Indy’s final season; we lost the fight for his last eye this fall (from a hereditary eye issue). But he’ll still be around, teaching the little ones how to behave and how to be an event horse. Always work for tomorrow, but be sure to cherish what you have today!
