    Exclamation In support of the "Classic Format" 3 Day- win 4 lessons with Bonnie Mosser

    Hello everyone!

    As many of you recall, this past spring I sold raffle tickets to raise money for Bonnie Mosser's trip to Badminton.

    We had a little surprise when we drew the winner... Bobby Costello was our winner! We contacted him via text message immediately and while he was thrilled to win he encouraged us to draw a second winner, someone who might have a little more time and need for our grand prize. This can be read about in the Breaking News section of our website (www.bonniemosser.com).

    To honor Bobby's generosity we have decided to offer 4 free lessons to a non-pro preparing for their first full "classic" format Three Day Event this fall (either 1/2* or 1*). The catch? To win this please submit a 500-1,000 word essay describing why you have decided to pursue the "ultimate" pinnacle of our sport: the full format 3-Day. Essays must be submitted to Rebecca (rebecca@bonniemosser.com) by August 15, 12pm. The winner will be notified by August 22. Please also include a summary of your qualifications (either already achieved or planned) and something that proves you are an amateur. Bonnie and Bobby will choose the winner based on the essay and your qualifications for the proposed competition (ie. we are not going to choose someone who has not yet competed at Training level because August 22nd is too close to the competitions). Please e-mail us with your questions. The winning essay will be posted on our website and anywhere else I can pawn it off

    It is completely free to enter! This prize is for lessons only. If the winner wishes to come for any number of consecutive days there will be a $20/night stabling charge.

    Thanks!

    That is a fabulous offer! Generally I have no regrets about being a pro, but I might be a teensy bit sad not to have an excuse to enter this contest!

    I have always wanted to write an essay to win something. I like writing. I don't do it enough anymore unless you count the jokes I'm always churning out for you wonderful people.
