I love to ride, more than
anything. I enjoy training the young horses (once
they are far enough along that I trust they won't
buck me off), and I love to hack out around the
farm, just appreciating being on the back of a
good horse riding through the beautiful
countryside. Seeing as how I have too many
metal bits in my body and don't bounce as well as
I used to, I don't compete any more, but I take
great delight in participating in the training of
the competition horses.
We are very fortunate to
have Cindy Anderson-Blank as a trainer and rider
to take over the reins in competing the Windchase
horses. She is talented and dedicated, and I am
happy and proud to have her ride and compete the

I am a firm believer in giving young
horses the right basics and correct training before pushing them
in competition. All of our youngsters are carefully trained; they
are never over-faced or pushed beyond what they are ready for. We
bring each horse along at the rate that is best for the
individual. Even if they are green, everything that has been
done with them has been done the right way, so that they have not
lost confidence or developed bad habits. I find this makes an
enormous difference in helping each horse reach its full
