    Cruzan repeats as champion

    North Port rider wins world titles in dressage

Return home with a ribbon. Melissa accomplished that, and a whole lot more. Riding her horse Hug Me Hotrod in the intro and basic divisions earned Melissa two junior class (14-18) world titles. She was the overall points champion and finished the top scoring Florida rider.

They still needed care and training and what many see as a chores became the one thing keeping me grounded. Its been said that necessity is the mother of...
