Today we celebrated the end of our first season training with Over the River Farm. We cannot be more grateful for everything @overtheriverfarm has done and continues to do for us even when things get rough. We also celebrated our president, Gillian, for being an amazing teammate and leader. Most importantly, we preemptively celebrated her graduation. It will be so incredibly hard to say goodbye but we are so proud of her and all of her accomplishments! Thank you for all of the support that everyone has given us this year and we can’t wait for next year.

We send our deepest sympathies to High Point University for the loss of a legend....FONTAINE! Everyone who has ridden or rides IHSA will feel this loss. He was the epitome of the dream draw. He was not only a true gentleman but also a real talent. Rest easy SIR. We appreciate all that you have done for us.
