Audrey came home transformed from the first team lesson yesterday. She was inspired, happy, proud and PROFOUNDLY moved by the bestowing of the first place world championship medal. It felt like "sacred gold" to her. I cannot thank you enough for this opportunity for us. I am deeply moved by the experience and want to express my sincere gratitude to the coaches, teams and horses at Deerfield.
