You can read all about Turning Point’s medals at Special Olympics in the 2012 Year End Newsletter but this picture gives you an idea of all the “behind the scenes coordination it takes to make it happen. Meanwhile Carson worked on his iPad when he wasn’t riding, Sarah was our youngest competitor and won her first medal but was ready to ride out of the arena on Dad’s shoulder and Ryan was thrilled with his participation ribbon.
Special Olympics is always a highlight of our year for riders, parents, volunteers and most of our horses. Several of them weren’t thrilled with the “Slumber Party” in the Expo Center barn the night before.
Our horses definitely prefer the Turning Point pasture even though Kenzie, Callie and Camille did a great job of tucking eight of them in on Friday night.
