Tom Mosley, QHRAI Director of Industry Relations, shows horse fans the fantastic photo album that Sarah Compton made after she attended the 2011 Quarter Horse Day at Indiana Downs. She had photos and details of horses in the paddock and going to the track and even about meeting jockeys and getting thier autographs. Sarah enterered her photo album in the 4-H fair and received Champion Honors. Sarah is a true example of someone who has a passion for horses and we certainly enjoyed her company at the Horse Fair. She talked about her experience and fun she had at Quarter Horse Day last year and the excitement of getting an at - home visit on Christmas Eve from Jockey Jeff Hogan. She had a smile on her face every time we saw her. Sarah went into the hospital just a couple days after these pictures were taken at the horse fair, to have heart surgery. Our thoughts and prayers are with Sarah and her family as she recovers and we look forward to her participating in the QHRAI Youth Day this year and and once again seeing her at Quarter Horse Day on June 30th. - Photos taken by Michelle CollinsClick here to see a pdf version with captions
