A Beautiful Horse

by Vicki Hodel

What is my 2014 memorable moment? This is a hard one. 2014 was a year of many highs and lows. There isn’t one WOW moment for me this year. Instead, it was a year of revelations and growth.

The year started off great. I started riding Beamer for Shelly Reichart. Beamer was amazing and I really learned some great things about how to ride him correctly. I was so excited and he was progressing so well that I finally got up the courage to attend our first show!

 

Beamer

I decided WEC (Wisconsin Equestrian Center) would be a great place to go. It was a long drive and after lots of detours we finally made it! Wow, what a beautiful facility with such friendly staff. I got unloaded, settled Beamer in and parked the truck. I quick walk around the grounds to get my bearings and I was ready.
