Class queen act
To the editor:
We had the privilege of riding behind Queen Jessica Carr of the Arlington Saddle Club at Pendleton’s Westward Ho Parade. I did not speak to her, but wanted to applaud her for showing calm, poise and good horse skills throughout the parade. Her horse was prancing, rearing, crow-hopping and backing up from beginning to end. And Queen Jessica smiled, waved and controlled her horse.
She may have lost some flowers off her bouquet, but she gained praise and awe from many who watched. You should be proud of having such a fine representative.
Well done, Jessica!
