"Going to worlds has been a dream of mines since I was a little girl. Having the Worlds on North American soil is even more amazing. Getting to ride my "little sports car" around on the green grass of Kentucky would make my dream come true. Ginny and I have shared our ups and downs which has included winning the Bromont CCI***, placing 9th at Rolex this spring and 3 trips to the hospital!!! I have grown to love Ginny more and more!!! I thank God that she is only 16 hands, because if she was any bigger, I would be not be able to ride her. She is the spunkiest, most athletic little horse I have ever sat on, and when she was younger this would get me in trouble as I spent more time on the ground that I did on her!!! All these characteristics are the reason now that she is so good!!! "
We have a big budget to get to the WEG and can only get there with your help! Between shipping to the Selection Trial at the AEC's, training camp in Ocala, hotel, flights, car rental, feed, supplements and general upkeep of Ginny.......our expenses our well over $10K.
