  1. Norwegian Fjord. He is a very nice horse, who won one of the very top honors in NATRC last year.

  2. I notice that a lot of the non-arab competitors are from places other than California.

    Of the Pacific Northwest riders, I see that Sue is riding her Curly, Chuck took his Mustang, and Terry will be on a Missouri Fox Trotter. I'm not sure what it means, but it's interesting...
