A Story of Gratitude

0
My introduction to the equestrian world began in the hunter and jumper rings. I started by competing with my first pony, a Welsh X Thoroughbred mare named Valencia, aka Lacey. After a tough year of troubleshooting lameness issues, and discovering her navicular syndrome, I began rehabbing her with dressage. Although Lacey’s medical issues have been a challenge to manage, I wouldn’t change a thing, as it led me to dressage. Lacey has taught me an incredible amount for which I will be forever grateful.
