Today is Eby Banfill’s 50th Birthday. She competed in this year’s Bromont International and as you can see, was a fierce competitor. Eby started riding as a teenager. She begged and borrowed horses as she could not afford to buy one of her own. She bought her first horse in her early 30’s when she lived in Alberta whom she brought back east. “Duke” is now 17.
Her mare “Alice” that she is riding now is a home bred ( Capone TB x) 7 year old which Eby struggled with keeping, as she thought the mare was too much for her. Needless to say she made the right decision. They were an exciting team to watch and photograph.
Ohh! Almost forgot! Eby, a very special Happy Birthday from Cindy J. Harris. She gave away your age.
