We’ve kept up with 10-year-old Addie Neumeyer and her pony, Blaze, through the years, and coach Lee Ann Zobbe was kind enough to send in the latest update:

“Addie is now 10, her feet reach below the saddle flaps and she and Blaze are quite the team,” Lee Ann said. “Here they are doing their first Training Combined Test. They got a 34 of their dressage test and had the last rail down to finish on a 38. Her folks are glad she can’t do Prelim for a few more years!”

Keep kicking on, Addie! Have a fun story to share? Tip us at [email protected].
