Cathie Sims and Ima Goer Cowboy, a registered Appaloosa gelding, spent 17 years as partners in trail riding, occasional Western riding, competitive English pleasure, and dressage. Several years ago, they began learning classical French dressage, which excited and revived them after a five year break due to Lyme disease.
Cowboy excelled in Children’s Hunters with a child rider in the same years Cathie was competing him in dressage. Shortly after their Century Club ride, Cowboy passed away.
Cathie is a pediatric nurse and former therapeutic riding instructor whose retirement allowed for those wonderful years with Cowboy; she is looking forward to more great years with her new pony. A second Century Club ride seems unlikely; but one never knows.
