Youth World About to Get Underway

Can you believe another year has gone by?  Tomorrow starts off with halter, Monica Hamm with her aged gelding will be the only one showing, but this is one of four horses she will be showing at the world show.  After the halter finals we will have three of our girls riding in Western Riding, Taylor Searles riding two horses, Shea Graham and I'm glad to have back Sydney Frank.  Sydney has two horses she will be showing this year at world and its been a long time coming back but she is ready with two healthy horses ready to take on the WORLD.
