Rocky Mountain Dressage Society is my regional chapter. This notice came as a complete surprise. Thanks go out to my horse, Monarch for working so hard and being so generous to let me ride him through my mistakes. I also wish to thank my family, especially to Kurt and Marissa, for all their support. Thank you to the rest of my family, who live too far to come see me compete, but follow my training and showing electronically. Thanks to my friends who support this new endeavor in my life, giving me encouragement and cheers. And finally, thank you to my trainer, Deborah Hindi, who has brought Monarch & I so far, through her belief in us, her knowledgable and generous training, her warm hospitality when I stay at her home to train, her invaluable coaching at my first show, and for being my very good friend!
