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.  ;-)
