Database — In Memoriam
April 1985 – November 2015
Besides painting, one of my other great passions in life is a love for horses — in particular a very special “schoolmaster” dressage horse named Database, who was my best friend and loyal companion for over two decades.
Database and I first came to California in 1995 to train with Hilda Gurney. He took me from first level to Prix St George, winning Regional Championship the first year. Then I rode him to Grand Prix and got my Gold Medal.
All in all, I rode Database six days a week for over 20 years. In all that time he was never sick, always sound, and always happy, until he left this earth at the age of 30½.
How I will miss him! ♥
