Speaking about horsepeople and calamaties/probably relevant to some
of our riders:
A friend of mine started this organization which provides funds and
assistance for the care of horses who belong to equestrians who are
being treated for cancer. During her own bout with cancer some years
back, it was a real struggle to care for and be able to afford her
horses. I'm fuzzy on dressage organizations, but whatever the big
one is, they're supporting this cause, too.
She's working the Norco ride again this year, and thinks if she had
it to do over again that she'd be an endurance rider. I tell her
it's never too late. ;-)
