OK, so it's been a while. But hey, you've been working on your back, and making splendid progress, right? I wanted to add some photos for you to enjoy so that you don't get the feeling that's it's all hard work and no play.
This is the Dave Costello training stables. Dave is a World Champion horse trainer, and a world class judge for the rodeo event called Cutting. He's recently been inducted into the National Cutting Horse Association Hall of Fame!
His stables are in Paso Robles, Ca. (3 hours from San Francisco). His fiance is also a world class cutter, and she also happens to be my sister! The both of them took my daughter and taught her to ride a cutting horse in just a few short weekends and a spring break, entered her in some competitions, and she ended up winning one! Her winnings are considered scholarship money for college (or some form of higher education), and can only be used as such. What a great idea.
Also, please enjoy the photo of the Big Game aftermath (Cal 34, Stanford 28).
