Shine and Shine Only IV-CEI-B
I helped out by
being a vet secretary at this ride. I have to start out
say that I woke up
on a sunny morning in Mountain View only to
go into windy,
cloudy Mt. Hamilton Road (San Jose) and had to
wear three more
layers than I normally would this time of the year.
As I drove home, I
had to pull off a layer at a time as I descended
back into Silicon
Valley (so there, Maryben...)
The only difference
I saw at this ride was that the vet check
had a taped off area
for P&R's and the vet lanes were more
marked. And of course, we had some endurance
Foss, DVM was there as the "foreign veterinary technical
of course Valery Kanavy. They are both very
and we enjoyed having them at the ride
Sandy Shuler,DVM was
looking kinda glam with her hot pink
lipstick as she
Becky Hart did
another great job as ride manager along with Judith Ogus.
Becky is such a real
person, that sometimes we forget that
she has done so much
for the sport of endurance with her
Mike Foss just
returned from a trip to New Zealand and Australia
to vet rides.
Dr. Nancy Elliott just had a trip to Brazil to vet a ride.
The vets were
hanging around comparing notes on
countries. I should have been more of a bug on the
wall, but I was more
concerned with getting my second cup of coffee
The more I see Nancy
as head vet in action, the more I am impressed
with her as a ride
vet. She knows most everyone by name, including
the horses, and
remembers their history.
I saw only two of
the FEI riders finish the ride before I left at 5:00 p.m.
They were not the
ones racing, either!!!
Other people hanging
out at the ride - names you might recognize from
someplace- Julie and
Bob Suhr, Ruth and Ron Waltenspiel, Mike Maul
and his computer,
Maryben - ride secretary extraodinaire, Heather Bergantz,
Lori Oleson, Ken
Cook, LS Zane Grey and his gang Eric, Kathy &
and a host of others
that my fried brain is stuttering on.
Well, next weekend
should be interesting too at Washoe. My farrier
better come thru
with his redo of three sprung shoes going into the
second week of a
shoeing cycle. Darn. Need to do an easyboot
training. Got my health cert/Coggins. I just NEED to
