Second place at CVI** Saumur, a first place winning the Great FallsSpring Fest, and to make sure she has one of each placing--a third at CVI** Kentucky Cup. Pretty impressive. Double so as Annalise does her vaulting practices on two coasts, then vaults on borrowed horses at almost every competition.

Dedication and 10 hours a week of running, conditioning and/or stretching, two hours of gymnastics, and another two hours of dance make her a pretty serious contender. She definitely flies!
