As an aside, Marilyn Little was just in the Press Tent for a Press Conference, talking about Fair Hill. She told the press that Fair Hill has the best volunteers, and she sees them year after year, often in the same places. She says "their enthusiasm in contagious!" So there you have it, volunteers. The first AND second place rider in the CCI 3* notices you and thinks you're AMAZING!

I started this post talking about our volunteers, so it's only fitting to end that way, too. Seema's jump in on the #YEH course. I love seeing it out there. But I hate that we have to have a fence in Memory of Seema. We miss you, Seema.
