IT has come to my understanding that another Horsewoman has passed the Golden Gates.
Cindy Jordan Walker of Chesapeake , Va . she was a well known and at one point successful Owner, Rider, Breeder and Exhibitor.
Not sure of the details but my deepest symphathy goes to the Jordan Family.

Tonight from 7-9pm the family is having friends at Sturtevant's Funeral Home on Portsmouth Blvd. in Portsmouth, VA. The service is Saturday at 11 am. I know a lot of people are attending the VHSA convention and won't be able to attend the service.

I feel very badly for her family, both her mother and father were very close to her. Her mother closed the tack shop last December and retired.

Please Do Not Take This The Wrong Way.
But do you know the cause of death.?
And YES, she was a good judge and at one point was a great voice in the Horse Show Community.
