Letter From Nell Hardy

Posted by Andrew on October 22, 2012

Thank you thank you thank you! Everyone was so kind to help with the benefit horse show. Even the weather cooperated with no rain and occasional glimpses of the sun.

It's now been three years since I sat on a horse and even longer since I've competed. But I still think of horses every day and smile over one or two equine memories. I've ridden since age four so there's plenty to choose from!

I am so honored and thankful to those who helped with the horse show. With the proceeds I was able to get a wonderful recliner with heat and massage. It is awesome! Stop by and give it a try! Because of your generosity I will also be able to have my wheelchair accessible van tweaked, lubed and serviced. It has to make it through another Erie winter to April, when it's time to head to Rolex again!

Thanks again for all your hard work!

-Nell Hardy

Benefit CT for Nell Hardy Photos Are Now Available

Posted by Andrew on October 10, 2012

We would like to get the word out there to riders and families who were present at the Benefit CT for Nell Hardy last Sat., that photos are posted and available for viewing on our web site.  We would also like to announce that we will donate 10% of all CD sales directly to Nell until Christmas.

We are going to offer discounts to riders and families who purchase CDs of either CT or Dressage only rides directly from us – (rather than through the web site) - That can be done by contacting Pete or I directly by phone or email.  All of our contact info is below.

The CT from that day is the first gallery on our web site, which link  is: http://brantgamma.exposuremanager.com/g/events

We are also available to do portrait and farm shoots in this gorgeous fall weather, for the next 2 1/2 weeks.  Think Sr. portraits and Christmas!!  Anyone interested can contact us.

Thanks for all your help!
