Stampede Parade July 27, 2011

Here are a couple pictures of the parade yesterday. I want to thank everyone for putting in the effort to show up and of course most of all Dan and Aspen Taylor and Kate Hollandsworth for not only picking up our poop but actually picking up the Stampede group and Roy Pace family poop... It was a beautiful day and our horses were well behaved (except for Eileen and my horse who fell in love...)

Our drill team, the Ballerinas on Beasts, won for mounted drill team. I don't know what they got as a prize but they looked fabulous. Bev Stiger's horse was the star of the day; Rocky carried the Queen and did a mighty respectable job of it.

Thanks again to the Taylor family, Sheri Onstott for getting us organized and the Hollandsworth's and their beautiful exchange student, Anna. It would have been wonderful to have a bigger crew but due to the parade being in the middle of the week most people couldn't come. But it was fun and I hope next year the parade committee fixes some glitches and we can be back in the parade as a larger group. Cheryl Schmidt

I hope Bev and Sonny got better pictures of us, my friend who took these got a lot of our "backsides"... Maybe he thought that was the best angle.
