"My Friesian mare, Clair (full name Clair NAF Sport), and I are looking forward to the opportunity to show in the Working Equitation National Championships. Our primary goals in Magnolia are to have fun and learn as much as we can. We are working hard to prepare and have lots of great help. We are fortunate in being part of a friendly and supportive local dressage club that is helping us to prepare with shows and clinics. The Oklahoma and Kansas WE groups are also very active, giving clinics and shows that I participate in every chance I can. But most helpful is the comaradarie and friendly competition that has developed among the Level 4 riders from Oklahoma and Kansas. We are a tight group that helps each other, supports each other and pushes each other to excel, resulting in better riding with a lot of laughs, cheers and hugs."
