Thank You Letters From Our Recipients


I HAVE successfully completed and graduated Oklahoma Horseshoeing School!!!
I arrived back from Oklahoma Horseshoeing School around December 1 and am thrilled to be back home. Most importantly I am thankful that the good Lord has led me this way, in His will, to help me shoe horses on my own. Also I am thankful to have acquired the knowledge & skill to give me the drive & desire to keep learning more and more about this career in steel. I have high hopes of helping horses & having a satisfying career. It is beyond my comprehension.
Now being out of school, I have been back at the Pinehurst Harness track working and conditioning the Victory Junction Horses for 2016-2017 training season. We have two coming 2 year olds that I will be shoeing and 3 other older horses. I am available at the track each day working and available, if needed, to tack a shoe on or pull a sprung shoe off. I have 9 more to trim at the farm and will start trimming outside clients as soon as I can get my business cards up. I need to be able to shoe 3 or 4 (or more) a day so my body needs conditioning. One thing I have learned: if you can shoe a Standardbred horse, then you can basically SHOE anything, because of Standards having a gait to them, which means a deep science!! I am LEARNING!
God bless you all and I hope to soon have pictures of me applying my craft here. I have included a picture of my diploma, my graduating photo (I am the tall one in the middle) some pics of me at my craft during school and me, back home, jogging at horse at the barn in Pinehurst.

Thank you so much for awarding me this scholarship! I am truly honored to have received it. Horses and horse racing have always been my passion and my goal is to get an education that will give me the tools to make it better! I am very excited to be going to the University of Illinois next year and studying animal science. This financial support is a huge help and I am very grateful!

Thank you very much for choosing me as a recipient of the Edward Weiner and Edward Yarock Scholarship. I am extremely honored and grateful to receive this award. The scholarship will be very helpful throughout the school year as I finish up my last 3 quarters of actual classwork and prepare to enter clinics in May. Currently, I have had a very exciting summer of advancing my knowledge in equine sports medicine and participating in several rodeos throughout the northeast. Within the next few weeks my summer will be coming to an end, and I will be heading back to Ohio to prepare for the beginning of the quarter. Thanks again for the encouragement and support as I continue with my academic career. It is greatly appreciated.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in this scholarship fund. From David Yarock and the committee members to all those who have made donations - I am very grateful. As everyone knows, a college education in today's age is one of the most expensive bills an American family faces. Without the help and support of scholarships like yours, I would not be able to afford college at the University of Findlay. Because of your generous contribution last year, I was able to go to a very exclusive veterinary study abroad tour in Japan. Myself, and two other students were selected by University of Findlay professors for this program after filling out an extensive application. The study tour lasted 4 weeks long and covered many aspects of veterinary medicine and Japanese culture. I was able to make many connections to Japanese people in the Veterinary field that I can keep in contact with later in both my professional and personal life. I was also able to learn techniques at Rakuno Gakuen University that my peers will not learn until they reach veterinary school. For the rest of summer 2011, I am working as a veterinary technician and learning as much as I an during my months off from school. Thank you for your continuous support in helping my dream of becoming an equine veterinarian!
