Big Ben and Ian Miller were the best team in horse jumping until they met up with a new rider; myself. I was riding my favorite Appaloosa horse. It was my turn to ride first and I did not knock any rails over. I have a backup horse which is a German Dulmen. I had a perfect course. Next it was Ian and Ben’s turn. They had 8 faults because Ben was tired. I won the competition now there is a new champ in town. Next David took his turn. He had to use my backup horse. He got thrown off because my horse did not like him. He was shaken up but not hurt.

I have discovered that life is very important because I have been through a lot of things that were good and bad.
I had some special people that died and that is why I think that life is precious. I was very lucky that I knew most of my relatives. I am lucky that I have such wonderful memories. I think that we shouldn’t take life for granted.
I believe that some things happen for a reason. I think some people believe and some people don’t believe that.
I have learned that if you are negative, then you feel like you can’t go on and
you won’t be productive. I always believe you should say,
“I think I can, I
think I can, I know I can.” I believe that is why I have come so far.
I think you should have confidence in yourself, I have learned if you have confidence you can do anything. Some people feel that they have no confidence but you have to start somewhere. You have to have pride in yourself to feel like you have a purpose.
