For entertainment, VCC brought in a great guy to lead us in line dancing and square dancing. We had the most fun learning those dances. Several times the caller joked about our lack of coordination and poor sense of direction given that we ride dressage. Most of us couldn't tell our left from our right or our toes from our heels!
Hilda Gurney had just finished her Grand Prix Championship ride on Wintersnow. As she walked by us, she noticed my championship ribbon. Stopping Wintersnow for a moment, she paused and congratulated me. I felt pretty honored that someone of her experience would take a moment to congratulate another rider even though she must have been still busy recovering from her challenging ride. Thank you, Hilda Gurney; you made my day!
