Horse Illustrated Profile - I am FAMOUS!

I was featured in the June 2009 Horse Illustrated HI Profile section. Yes, your friend STB Eventer is FAMOUS! LOL! I filled out the information back in the summer of 2008 and sort of forgot about it. I received an email a couple of week ago congratulating me on being chosen! I even won an Absorbine Stall Disinfectant Kit, which is a $50 value! And Absorbine sent me a shirt too! :)

I thought I would keep it a secret from everyone until the issue came out. I was able to purchase it today. Here is the full page...

    I had sent this friend pictures of that lady from Maine up on the big guy doing the Dressage Test at the National in 2008. He "got it" then. We had a great laugh and he told me to tell you he enjoyed the heck out of the piece in HI and told a few of his friends out there about the little Standardbred mare that CAN!!!!
