Today marks the opening of the All American Quarter Horse Congress. As the name suggests, Columbus, Ohio will welcome horses and riders from all over the country.
Hurricane Matthew is settling in over Florida as we speak, wreaking havoc there, and in a significant portion of the Eastern seaboard. With that in mind, I worry about our extended horse family. Some trying to make their way north, to show at Congress, and others simply trying to keep their farms and families safe.
To you, our Southern horse family, I offer hope and prayers for safe stables, dry earth beneath your hooves and boots, and the emotional endurance to ride the storm out. May God protect and keep you until the sun shines again.
