Life has been a little hectic with a lot of school work and riding so I didn't get a chance to start writing untill now. Since the show, HORSE POWER, first aired in February, Beacon Hill has had a lot of visitors coming to meet the trainers, the riders, and the horses. It felt really wierd to see all of us on television and, yet it was a terrific experience being in the cast! The show seems to have made a good impression on some young children and hopefully inspired them to ride which truly brings a smile to my face. Many of the visitors that came to the barn were excited to meet Frank, Stacia, Max, and Krista, as well as the riders and many asked for autographs. At Tampa, I showed two young girls around the barn and the show grounds, introduced them to Beezie and asked her to sign their posters, and brought them up to the Covered Arena where they met the rest of the Beacon Hill crew. Brianne, Chelsea, and I signed their posters and talked for a little bit about the show.
The Invitational at Tampa is one of my favorite events during the circuit. The main highlight for me is getting to walk the course prior to watching the riders execute it. It's fun to test yourself and see if the course winds up riding the way you walked, and on top of it, your watching some of the best riders in the world!
