October 2015 - Letter To The Editor

After reading Europe 101, in the August 2015  issue, please extend my sincere appreciation and congratulations on a terrific, informative story! Capturing an "authentic you-are-there" feeling, I was super impressed by Genay Vaughn chronicling her journey to Europe and acknowledging all the supportive people, traveling experiences and positive "can do- will remember" learning opportunities. Genay remained undaunted and eagerly learned invaluable lessons (bring your breeches and boots; familiarize yourself with national and international requirements) consistently demonstrated poise, patience, professionalism and an unflagging interest and excitement in every horse related activity and travel opportunity showing personal and  equestrian maturity exceeding her chronological age.
A terrific article!!
