Sun, silver, smiles and dreams that come true…

Ely Ann Côté is shown in her first Performance Halter Class competition with Wimpys Dollars Whiz, owned by Jocelyne Beaudoin, who boards her horse at Ferme Torima. Ely came in seventh.

After a winter of riding classes, often in a cold arena; after grooming, preparing, practising and repeating the same patterns over and over again, the sun finally came out to shine at the first Association Performance Équestre de Québec (APEQ) competition of the year, held at the Beaulieu Stables in Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures on June 4 .
