A good friend and wonderful mentor

Approximately 25 years ago, I took my first lesson with Dorothy in Lafayette , Louisiana. I had been a “rider” since I was 12 years old but soon found out I knew nothing about dressage. The first thing she asked me was , “ what is the distance between each letter in the dressage arena?” Well , of course I did not know. I thought, who knows those things !! So began my journey of learning dressage. She was so dedicated to her students and their horses, making sure we were going on the right path of knowledge. She became a good friend and a wonderful mentor. Every time I ride I hear her words of wisdom in my head. We will miss her in Louisiana and are so grateful to have had her guiding us in the right direction, doing it with fun and love. Miss you and love you Dorothy!
