Ride high Miss Addie across that rainbow pasture. Brushy Creek Saddle Club brought Addie and I together. She was a tireless cheerleader, mentor, coach and role model for ALL young riders in the club. She especially loved the princesses and queens of the club, working to make them the best role models they could be. Thank you for your influence on me and my kids, especially guiding Tifani through the AASP&RC royalty and helping her and Brandon become fine young adults today.

I have known Mrs. Addie my entire life. Ever since I was a little girl, she always made sure I knew and demonstrated proper horsemanship, sportsmanship, & citizenship. She taught me all about being a sweetheart through Brushy Creek Saddle Club where she was my mentor for many years. I will surely miss that sweet smile every time I saw you. Fly high Mrs. Addie! I will always be “your little cowgirl!”

I met Addie at a young age of 9, when I started in the playday world. She was a vibrant spitfire who just took me under her wings and treated me like I was one of her own grandkids. She showed me the ropes and always loved everyone she met. She knew no strangers. Even though we would be hot and sweaty at the playdays, Addie was always looking like a million bucks! Sure am going to miss that beautiful, contagious smile and the hugs she always gave out!

I remember going with your mom and dad to the dance Hall and meeting your grandparents there. Addie taught me how to country dance. She also taught me how to ride a horse.
