Good Morning Everyone,
We have lots to discuss in the blog today!!
First off, we want to inform you of a great FREE webinar that our very own, Pam Saul, will be speaking at coming up on November 11, 2013. It’s about ‘How to Improve the Profitability of Your Horse Business’ and we feel that this is going to be a very educational webinar for people with all types of horse businesses. Please check it out! This is a great resource! You can find out more information here: http://www.equestrianprofessional.com/public/Free-Webinar-Horse-Business-Profit-Booster.cfm

Also, during the show, we held the Buck Breast Cancer event that honors Laura Pickett, our trainer who lost her life last year to breast cancer. We had many of Laura's family and Rolling Acres friends come to the Washington International Horse Show to honor Laura. The Laura Pickett Excellence in Horsemanship Award was given out this year to a deserving junior. The event benefited the capital Breast Care Center. Thank you to everyone who came and made it a very special night.
On another note, we would like to send a “Get Well” along with speedy recovery wishes to one of our clients, Lisa Kuntz who broke her ankle and is currently recovering.
