Member of the Week Kay Moore

Introducing this week’s Member of the Week, Kay Moore of Texas!

“Kay Moore and her Arab, Buddy are truly amazing.  Kay has risen to the upper ranks of the Texas standings with grit and determination aboard her gorgeous gelding.  I won’t give up the secret of Kay’s age, but she is one of the most Senior riders in Texas!  Never say never! What is most impressive about Kay is that she always has a positive, edifying word to say to every rider, every host and every volunteer.  You never hear any griping, complaining or whining from Kay — only sincere encouragement and praise. Kay, her husband and dog started out ACTHA rides with a cot in the back of their two-horse trailer.  Surgery mid-way for her husband slowed them down only slightly.  Rain?  Snow?  No problem!  They are an amazing couple and her husband supports her horse addiction with enthusiasm. Kay seems to have an instinct for when a person needs an encouraging word, off horse and on.  You’ll often see her “adopt” new ACTHA riders and teach them the ropes.  Kay’s first blue ribbon on Buddy at the Bunker Hill Freedom Horses ride was one of happy tears for virtually the whole rider crew that day.  Knowing how hard Kay and Buddy had worked to become a great team, we all enjoyed her first blue! Kay’s beautiful spirit encourages all of us to be just a little bit better people, to love each other, have grace with each other.  We wish her tremendous success in the 2013-2014 season as a new OPEN rider!”
