Sue has owned many horses and mules over the years but
she is best known at the shows for her rides on Sweet Lady Val. She had
been a member and Officer of the South Louisiana Horse Show Association
for many years and is a Charter Member and Officer in the South
Louisiana Saddle Club. She has won the Overall Judged Events
Championship on Val and has won Western Riding numerous times plus wins
in many other events over the years in the shows and Team Pennings. Most
recently, she won the 2005 SLSC Senior Championship Saddle on Val. She
has also ridden in many Mardi Gras parades and enjoyed many trail rides.
One of her greatest enjoyments is teaching kids to ride and watching
them enjoy themselves at the shows on one of her horses. In 1999 two
different youths won overall Reserve Championships on her horses. She
likes to see the kids win but more important to her is to see them
enjoying themselves and practicing good sportsmanship.
