What an amazing 5 days of showing for us all.  The 2nd level division was won by both Horizon students!  Thanks to all who came out and watched and helped out. It takes an amazing amount of work to pull this off.  Especially to Brad Larson, Andrea’s husband for his TOP shelf stall mucking! 
I could not be more proud and thrilled for everyone this weekend.  This level of competition is so hard and requires alot from both horse and rider. Once again the Horizon group stood out from the crowd.    sheri
