Kim Keppick submitted her Throwback Thursday photo with this cool story: Eventing in Ireland in 1983. Came to USA in 1984 at age 19 to work for Karen Lende (now O’Connor) who was at Jimmy Wofford’s barn at the time.”

Susan Gawley sent in our next photo. “My first horse Tonto and I doing our dressage test at Aquilina Farms in Royalton, N.Y., circa 1983. He was a 15.2-hand Quarter Horse gelding I bought while working as a camp counselor at Forestel Farm during college. He was an off-the-track QH that had a background in barrel racing. Turned out to be an amazing little dressage horse who was 1987 AHSA Champion at First Level for my zone. Best first horse a girl could ever ask for. Had him 10 wonderful years. I groomed him so much that his coat gleamed like a wet seal!”

In the picture,  she is putting on shipping bandages after a Pony Club rally held at UNH. The pony is Cinnamon Sizzle. She was a member of Squamscott Pony Club.”
