Many people we have met because of The Extreme Mustang Makeover and the Challenge are participating in the 2008 200 version.
One very special person we met last year is Ashley Stevenson. Ashley and Angi stayed late at night to play, laugh, and let their horses have some time out of stall without 2000 people walking about. We all had so much fun with Ashley (Ashley and Angi make a deliteful pair!)
Ashley did a fantastic job with her horse Rock who was a bit overwhelmed by the crowd during the horse course but who went on with patient urging from Ashley. For those whose only exposure to Ashley and Rock was their horse course, here is a glimpse of Ashley & On the Rocks, (and Angi & Freedom) the night before, or more truthfully EARLY morning of the 07 EMM event...
The girls, and their geldings had a lot of fun just hanging out away from the spectators and bustle of the event. There is video I'd pay money to own! (did you hear that Darlene?) I missed out on some of their best fun while picking up a friend at the airport.. Hey! Wait a minute I missed out on some fun in Sac doing the same thing!
I may have to curtail my taxi service at future events if this keeps up!
