  Quartz is my best buddies horse.  She is a Tbd/Percheron mare that my friend Dana purchased about 3 years ago.  Quartz is a pretty Dapple grey.  She looks like a typical nice Percheron cross, but under that guise is a jumping machine with a jump launch like a rocket.  Throughout the past three years I have watched them blossom from a new team, to a confused pair, to an uncertain pair, to an amazing pair.  Overcoming disappointment, fear, and heartbreak.

 This post is dedicated to my bestest friend Dana and all the hard work she has done with her girl Quartz.  She has worked so hard, taken all of the good advice she has been given from different people to heart, ignored the bad, and overcome obstacles that would have stunted others. 

  I can't wait to see what the future holds for you two.  I am so proud of you Dane!
