Another exciting development for Aspire Eventing is the addition of two new team members, Daphne Litchner and Davina Warrener. Both of these ladies are excellent horsewomen, have the most positive attitudes, and are tremendous assets to the team. I was lucky enough to cross paths with both of them while in Florida, and am so thrilled to now have them here in Colorado. Welcome, Daphne and Davina!
Our longtime team member Ally Presicci will be cutting back her time at Aspire to focus on her aspirations of being a real estate agent. We are so grateful for all of her hard work and for everything she’s done for the two and four legged members of Aspire Eventing. We wish her the very best in her pursuit of real estate excellence!
I will be spending the remainder of the year training and prepping for another exciting trek to Florida in the new year. My goal is to get Bravio feeling strong and confident in the 4* level and eventually compete in our first ever 5*. I hope to continue moving Rey and Baral up the levels and be competing at the 3* level by next fall. I am so thrilled to have three incredible horses who continue to impress me day in and day out, and I cannot wait to see what we can accomplish together in 2024.
Instead of having our annual holiday party this year, we are going to do a “ring in the new year” party instead on Saturday, January 13th, 2024. In addition to a fun evening of coming together and celebrating the Aspire Team, we will once again have our traditional Make-A-Wish auction and fundraiser. Keep an eye out for an
invitation coming soon!
As we approach the end of another amazing year, I want to express my utmost gratitude to all of you who make this dream of mine a reality. Thank you to my clients who are such a pleasure to work with and who teach me so much in return. Thank you to my owners for trusting me to take the ride on some of the most talented, big-hearted horses I’ve ever come across. Thank you to my coaches, Buck Davidson, Mariano Bedoya, and Sue Martin, for helping me grow and giving me the guidance and wisdom I need to achieve each new goal. Thank you to my sponsors for providing me with the best products on the market and for giving me the opportunity to be a part of your amazing teams. Thank you to my employees for all your hard work and for taking such impeccable care of the horses, the barn, and of me. And thank you to my friends, family, and my husband, Jeff, for being my cheerleaders and supporting me every step of the way. I am endlessly thankful to all of you who make this journey such a joy to be on.
It has been an incredible year of growth and learning, and I am more determined than ever to achieve some very exciting goals in 2024. BIG THINGS ARE AHEAD!!!
Thank you all for your love and support, and cheers to a great new year!
