Stallion owner appreciates horse sense exhibited at event

Posted: Friday, June 11, 2004

On May 28 at 7 p.m., the Soldotna Equestrian Association and SEA member, Mary Rainwater, presented SEA's third annual Horse Sale and Parade of Stallions. I would like to take this opportunity to express my thanks to Mary Rainwater and the individuals who helped her for all their hard work.

My stallion was one of several who were offered for viewing at the event.

Although notice of the event was rather short (I found out about it in the Clarion's "Events" section on May 27), I learned that entry forms had been available in local feed stores since the previous week. However, Ms. Rainwater worked with me and made it possible for me to attend and exhibit my stallion.

Now, my stallion was undoubtedly the worst behaved stallion there. Understand, he was in no way mean or overly aggressive, he was simply extremely excited to be there! To her much deserved credit, Ms. Rainwater took it in stride and was extremely gracious in understanding the fact that he had not been to a horse event of any kind for over seven years.

She, in my opinion, is a true horsewoman with true "horse sense" and an honest understanding of the often misunderstood equine mind (especially stallions).

I have already thanked Ms. Rainwater personally, but I felt that she, the individuals who helped her and SEA deserved a public thank you and a wish for more successful and, hopefully, growing annual Horse Sales and Parades of Stallions in the future.

Helen Hunt, Soldotna
