Holiday Party Pictures!

What a fun evening with all our crazy dressage friends!. Once again we give a hearty "Thanks!" to our hostess, Susan Croft, for opening her wonderful home for this get together. Below is the picture of all 28 of us enjoying a quiet sit down moment after a raucous game of Round Robin Santa! We partook of an Italian banquet and refreshing libations (non alcoholic or otherwise). But the greatest fun is the enjoyment of chatting with other members without dirt on our clothes and the dreaded hat hair. It really feels good to get to know each other better.
