What a great experience you got to have! I have 2 friends who work at Spruce Meadows as Grooms/Handlers/Exercisers. I love it there!

I love Beezie Madden, what a phenominal rider and a GP rider for us Lower Level's to look up to!

Ian Millar, he is my Idol. I got to ride in a Clinic under him eons ago. He was the one who taught me how important dressage is for jumpers and he is the one who taught me Jumping Is Dressage With Speed Bumps.

Great pictures!!!! I have never been to Spruce Meadows, but grew up watching every single program they had on the telly. I have tapes galore with recordings of Spruce comps - even when Ian was still riding Big Ben.

Sheesh, looking at those fences, sure does make me realize how small the fences that I am jumping are. lol. Could you imagine approaching one of those monsters??? Nuh huh...
