This nomination is for a great friend and horseman, Stephen Gregory, for member of the week, a rider and ride host with ACTHA. Stephen has a special relationship with horses and people. You can be riding along the trail with Stephen and he will break out in song, usually beautiful, cowboy ballads. He is a cowboy poet and loves to sit around the campfire and entertain until midnight. He comes early and stays late to help. He is always willing to take new riders and greenhorns under his wing, he usually goes down the trail with an entourage of new riders. He makes everyone feel welcome and truly doesn’t know a stranger. Stephen is so giving of his talent and time and deserves recognition for his many contributions to horses and riders alike.
Stephen is the resident trainer at the beautiful Bull Pasture Mountain Ranch in Highland County, Virginia.
