Three of the Best!

An overcast afternoon, heavy with the threat of thunder, could not stop nearly one hundred people from visiting the Legacy Garden at High Hopes last Friday.
The celebration, hosted by the Legacy Society, was to honor two of High Hopes longest serving instructors, Jonnie Edwards and Holly Ridgway. Holly has retired as an instructor, but has since gone on to give and give again, as a working Trustee. Most recently chairing the MoonDance Auction.
Students, some of whom had started out with Jonnie, recalled their introduction to a lifelong love of horses through High Hopes, and many volunteers recounted stories of working alongside Holly and Jonnie in the ring and on the trails.
The thunder held off, allowing everyone to enjoy a relaxed get together in the midst of the Legacy Garden at it’s best.
