“More important than another National Championship with a great horse, Jimmy’s ordeal affected Katie deeply. Her perspective on showing him completely changed. “After Jimmy’s surgery, I felt a greater appreciation to be a part of his journey rather than focusing on a prize. I would have been fine with leaving him home. I was just grateful he was still with us. But I knew he wanted to go. Jimmy knows when it’s October. It was really his choice to show. Jimmy has as much heart as he does talent, if not more. I thought we were at the end of his career last year. Now he feels like a different horse. Maybe we are just getting started.”
