    Great interview! Justin is an incredible athlete with really soft hands. Ted Robinson once told me that Justin breathes with his horse and that’s what makes him so good. Having ridden with Justin quite a bit, it’s really nice to see him achieve this level of success! I still hear Walt and Sharon when Justin speaks…they always talked about being patient with your horse, don’t put too much pressure on them. Congrats Justin!!!!!

    I rode with Walter as a young person and was so proud of Greg when he won the Snaffle Bit. That last time I saw Justin he was a baby. I remember all of those Horses and this family well. God Bless Them all.
