From Growth to Gold Medal!

HorseAddict

In the spring of 2012 Charlotte Dujardin, and her horse Valegro, came to Florida to compete in the Dressage Masters at the Jim Brandon Center.  Some of us had heard of her but she was not well  known outside of her native England. From what we saw  we were impressed and we knew she would be a contender. But we did not know how exponential that  growth would be.

Charlotte and Valegro warm up for the GP

London Olympics, August,  2012. I was lucky enough to be there with 22,000 other people to see this.

I Was Wrong … and I’m Glad I Was

It is almost one year to the day that I kicked off this blog with a promise to myself that I would actually do it.  And maybe even stick to it for a little while.  You can read my promise to myself (and my lack of faith in same) at the following link:

Higher Resolution … or Highly Resolute … or Just High

Overall, I would rate my progress over the past year as a solid “E” (i.e. exceeded expectations).  I honestly thought I would only get six or eight posts into this thing before I gave it up.  That had been my track record up until then and I saw no reason why the pattern wouldn’t repeat.  After all, I have lived a life made up of started-but-never-finished projects.  It just seems to be part of my DNA.

But I am happy to report that I have not only…

Ok, now with that out of the way, let me dive into my worries.  In case you missed it at the very beginning of this post, but they’re purchasing it for $52.4 billion dollars, so I hope that impresses upon you the size of a deal like this.  According to…
