Dear Beasties! I just wanted you to know how amazing I think you all are! Out of 2000
riders throughout the country, 12 of you made it to the S.A. Nationals .This is an
achievement that I am so thrilled about. I actually don’t have the words to describe how
happy you have all made me. I want to thank each and every-one of you for all the hard
work and effort that was put in. It is an enormous pleasure to be tired at the end of an
interschool day when I see how hard you have all worked and how well your horses were
ridden by each of you and the 100% effort that was put in. My heart felt and warm
congratulations to my beasties!
That been said, none of this would have been obtainable without the parents. I hope that our riders know what awesome moms & dads you have. This is an expensive hobby and parents do their utmost to ensure that you guys can have the privilege of riding. Please be very grateful for your parents awarding you this luxury. It’s truly a privilege and not a right.
Mwah! Love you all!!
