"Hey Vanessa, (Fiddlers Gremlin MacDaire) and I went to our first show today. We were Champion in all three of our divisions: Mini-hunter, Short/Long Stirrup, and Two-foot Equitation. Looks like Gremlin is coming out of retirement with a bang. I love him to death." Katie Benton (8/00)

And a word from her mom, "Katie had a wonderful time showing Gremlin on Sat. The judge told her "I love your horse" It was the positive experience we were hoping for to get her back on the right track. Thank you for making it possible."

You're welcome, Patty!!
