“I hold a tremendous appreciation and affection for the school horses as well as the students who ride them.  Nothing gives me more pleasure than seeing a student able to perfect their skills while learning to ride on the school horses here.  I personally consider the students and school horses an integral part of our riding center, and I would like students at Ascot to someday develop the same appreciation for these horses that I have myself.”
