As everyone now knows, riding a horse across the United States has been a dream of mine since I was twelve years old. I am fifty six years old and it is finally coming to pass. Not only do I get to live a life-long dream, but I get to do it with three people that I love, admire and respect. The icing on the cake is the fact that we get to help other people while we are doing it. To me that is Heaven, or as close as I can get to it here on earth... I can tell you one thing though.... there are hero's that are helping us get this done... there are so many at home that helped us get off and running... Then, once on the road, we met our first hero's in the form of Sherry McDaniel and Charlie Ohton and the people at Super Gentle Horses. They have helped us beyond words. We have now met a second set of Hero's. They are David and Valery Lagesse of Angel Haven Ranch. They have opened their home, their hearts and their family to us during our stay here. We owe them a huge debt of gratitude. Their kindness, hospitality, and boundless efforts on our behalf have been overwhelming. They have gone far beyond anything we could have expected, and like Sherry and Charlie, they have become lifelong members of our family. We left South Carolina, four women on a mission. We will return, part of an ever growing family of love that stretches from one coast to another.... Andi.
