The Equessense 2014 Spring Play Day on March 29th, at the Comal County Sheriff’s Posse was a wonderful experience for all involved. Each group of riders participated in 4 events:
- The Cloverleaf Barrels
- The Baseball Drop
- Figure 8 Stake
- RacePole Bending
They all worked very hard all year to be prepared to do their best. They each were models of sportsmanship and team work. We are exceedingly proud of every one of these exceptional individuals.
The Comal County Sheriff’s Posse is a generous friend to whom we are very grateful for allowing us to host this event in their fine facility 4 play days in a row.
The New Braunfels Fire Department kindly sends the EMS crew and ambulance to be there for us just to guarantee the safety of everybody there. We thank Mark Elliot, our friend and chief for being so responsive to our program.
Of course we thank Creative Trophies and the Vickreys to whom tribute is paid in a separate section for the trophies and medals.
The beautiful, meaningful images all of you reading this are seeing come from Tami Sweeten Photography. Her Facebook Page shows her other fantastic work if you are interested in getting in touch with her! She was so very charitable to photograph the event in her unique, artsy style without charging us.
We also appreciate Roy, Billy and LaDawn who always come through with delicious hamburgers, hot dogs and all the trimmings. Grateful credit goes to Rachael & Summer who donated the Egg-Toss prize: Movie passes (Congratulations to Evan & Josh).
We hope the many individuals and businesses, too numerous to mention, who donated bake sale items, water and other items for sale know how thankful we are for their support.
All of our wonderful athletes and families know that they are what it’s all about and they are our shining stars. And special thanks and accolades to the best volunteer staff in the world who made this event possible.
A BIG, HEARTFELT thanks to our amazing big brothers & sisters, the Alamo City Gypsy M/C, for providing financial support, hard labor, riders sponsorships, and man power whenever we need it. Photos coming soon!
But no thank-you note would be complete without the mention of our wonderful, magical, healing equine therapists who donate their very lives for the service to these special kids who they love and care for.
The Equessense Team, organization and program are very, very blessed!
