Spotlight Rider - each quarter we select an individual who has shown exceptional horsemanship, sportsmanship and is a representative of the culture we strive to establish and maintain at Foxlair West. This is our "Spotlight Rider". This rider is not necessarily part of our Show Team, but is being recognized for their hard work and dedication to the sport, their love and caring of horses and the positive effect they have on those around them.
I decided to change my spotlight rider for now and expand it to everyone who had the opportunity to have their lives touched by "Benny". His career started long before Veronica and I bought him back in 2011. Since then, he has had a major impact on all who had the honor to ride, love and just learn from his gentle but sometimes demanding ways :) With us, he spanned everything from the 1.20m jumpers to the 11 and under equitation. He's been a hunter, a jumper and a great friend. He is still missed every day.
