Mary King clinic a success
Mary Elizabeth King MBE has represented Great Britain in six Olympics and has won too many medals to list here. She taught a clinic at Fresno County Horse Park Monday and Tuesday, November 17-18. She showed us she is both a great teacher and a great person. She is charming. Mary spoke to all of us after dinner Monday night. Cheryl Gentzler told me afterwards she could have listened to Mary talk all night. I felt the same way. We all hope she will come back.Thanks to Sue Funkey for setting this clinic up.
