Today is Lendon Gray's birthday, and we are sure she is celebrating the rapid progress being made by Dressage Olympian Courtney King Dye as she continues to make huge improvements while working hard at recovery at the Kessler Insitute. Lendon posted the latest report on her Facebook page; "Just got back from an wonderful afternoon with Courtney. She is totally alert, funny, serious, inquisitive. She asked about her horses, her students and various irrelevant things. We talked about the amazing support she has had from so many people around the world and she had trouble believing this." We sent Courtney a poster size image of her "Two Thumbs Up" photo from the Olympic Trials in 2008. "I have always loved this photo of Court." Courtney's husband Jason told us. "It is from after her second Grand Prix ride on Myth at the Olympic Selection Trials when she got 75%. What I love is that I have never seen her give a double thumbs up after any other ride and this was her highest Grand Prix score and best test ride ever in my opinion."
