The New Year is here ! My beloved Italian riding boots, my County saddle and I are getting ready to embark on a very long and exciting journey—one that I thought I would never undertake. I can hardly wait to begin!
New challenges are coming my way. New friends await. Amazing discoveries are on the horizon. The unique horses I’ll encounter will be unforgettable.

Happy New Year 2017 !
