Who was it from? The AERC (American Endurance Ride Conference). What was in it for this special horse?
His 1000 mile certificate! It's official - 1000 career endurance trail miles for Jose Viola. I got to do 620 of those on my favorite horse. : )
Was he impressed? Well, he inspected it closely, but I think that he thinks that every horse that gets a thousand miles should get a bucket of carrots from AERC. We get to frame his certificate, he gets to eat the bucket of carrots.
