After a summer of hard work, she rode beautifully and completed technical courses. Congratulations, Irene. It was a year of growth. We can’t wait to attack next years goals with you and Sven! Special thanks to the entire PL family that watched and supported us from VA! Also a thank you to our sponsors and support staff! It takes a village.
