Your Wednesday News & Notes:
As a 15-year-old, Bridgette Miller was awestruck by Sally Cousin’s five-star veteran Tsunami III. Twelve years later she’s still enamored with the mare, only now she also has the ride on her! Bridgette piloted “Sue,” a notoriously hot and opinionated OTTB, to her first Advanced completion this past weekend at the MARS Essex Horse Trials. [At 20, Tsunami III Shows No Signs Of Slowing Down]
An article on EN helped Bronwyn Watts find her purpose.
