I have decided to go to Luhmuhlen!!!

Yes… Luhmuhlen is next! Arthur is perfect, I am determined! My travel plans, thanks to Paul Weygand at Mersant, are set. I love working with Paul. Fortunately we have done this a couple of times now, so we have a pretty good idea of what to expect and we also know to be prepared for the unexpected. I still have to figure out if ice can be easily bought in Germany? In France it was impossible to buy ice. That was unexpected.

As you all know, a trip to Europe with a horse is no small feat. The finances involved are HUGE (I need to raise approximately $23,000!). I will need a lot of assistance to make this all a reality. I currently am planning two fundraisers. One here in Upperville, Virginia at the farm on June 6 from 6-9. The second in Barrington Hills, Illinois on June 25 at Cresswood Farm. You can expect great silent auction items (a sneak preview of a few items: Haygain Hay Steamer, Charles Owen Helmets, $100 Gift Certificate to SmartPak, Harwich Eventer Bridle from SmartPak, Mattes Pad from World Equestrian Brands, lessons from your favorite pros, event entries, Cross Country schooling passes and much, much more. If you would like to come to either of these fundraisers, please email me at and I will make sure you receive an invitation. If you cannot attend, but would still like to help out… either a tax deductible contribution can be made to the AHTF ( or alternatively a financial contribution can be made directly to me. Both can be sent to me at PO Box 193 Marshall, VA 20116.

Asking for this kind of help is the hardest thing for me to do. I cannot thank you all enough for your continuous encouragement and support. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Apparently I've been obsessed with horses since I was born, and I used to beg for pony rides on a regular basis. I started showing in 4-H, progressed to equitation and jumpers in high school and rode on the IHSA team in college where I also discovered the joys...
