This is a tribute and a farewell to one of our dear friends, Cathy Simmons, who passed away last week. After she was diagnosed with brain cancer, Cathy came to Hoofbeats to check “ride a horse” off her bucket list. But as they usually do, the horses found a permanent place in her heart. Cathy loved riding and she stayed with the Hoofbeats program for a year. She often brought her grandchildren with her as her grooms. Cathy committed to losing weight last year in order to ride more, and her friends at TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) sent a donation in her name. Hoofbeats was a very special place for Cathy and she holds a dear spot in all of our hearts. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family.
