The outpouring of love and support continue to gain momentum as the equestrian world reaches out with their prayers, cards, messages and healing thoughts to Dressage Olympian Courtney King Dye who remains in a coma as a result of a riding accident March 3 at Saint Mary's Hospital in North Palm Beach.
Wednesday night, March 10 at the Player's Club Restaurant, 13410 South Shore Blvd, Wellington, Florida at 7PM, the popular Dressage Under the Stars Series will have the last Freestyle event before the Finale next week.
