Three years ago today in the little front range mountain town of Longmont, a perfect buckskin pinto filly was born. This town, miles from where I went to college at Colorado State and an even shorter disxtance from my daughter’s home in Brighton was just the right sort of coincidence I love and cannot refuse.
From the moment this baby caught my eye, I was gone. Buckskin being my favorite color and having the breeding and movement to really be a contender for Lauren. We bought her sight unseen.
Today, exactly three years to the day, Betty Sue came home from her first trainer. First, Lauren under Trapp’s tutelage is a more confident, precise rider and second Betty Sue while quick and handy was not silly or difficult. Watching Lauren take the mare to the mounting block for the first time and quietly lift over herself over the baby’s back was awesome. I was holding back tears.
Huge points to Kurt Kelso the perfect cowboy to start a perfect girl towards her dream job of competing her way through the young jumpers across United States. We are so excited to be putting this horse on track for future development
Three years!! A fantastic journey for us. I cannot wait to see where this mare is three years from now!
HUGE DAY FOR US!!! SO GLAD YOU COULD BE A PART OF IT,
Thanks for riding along!
