POINT OF PERSONAL PRIVILEGE: NACHES DEPARTMENT

This weekend I had the pleasure of attending the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association’s National Championships in Raleigh, North Carolina, where my daughter Emily placed eight in Alumni Equitation on the Flat.  This was the culmination of 18 years of hard work that all began with a casual trail ride for a seven-year-old  in Tucson, Arizona.  I am loathe to feed my childrens’ fantasies of being under-privileged, but in the equestrian world, where you might find Ann Romney or Mike Bloomberg in the parents section, I must confess to not being the best provider, making Emily’s accomplishment all the more impressive.  The video is here. Way to go Em!
