    Here is a photo of my 12-year old daughter, Claire, and Minister (Fund The Minister). They are at a dressage schooling show that was held this past weekend. This was his 3rd dressage show and first time at training level. His scores ranged from the low 60's to 68%.He is also currently in training with three star Eventing rider, Erika Treis Petersen. He's doing great - he has a really nice jump, gets a little nervous about the dressage (typical event horse), and while he's only had minimum experience on the cross country, he's proving to be brave and willing. We're hoping to get him out on a starter course or two this year.When we got Minister in April 2011, he was 16.1 and he's now just a hair shy of 16.3. He's put on quite a bit of weight, too. He gets great care - my friend Kathy says "he's fallen into a tub of butter" and I think she's right. He's worth it and we just love him!!Thanks for all you and the dedicated New Vocations staff do for these horses.Diane and Claire McNulty Holland, MI
