Thank you so much for first of all, offering the DRA college scholarship and then for granting me this scholarship! I have applied to so many scholarships and this is the first one I have received! I can honestly say that it means so much more for it to be the DRA scholarship that was my first one! Horses have been a part of my life since childhood and dude ranching/outfitting out west has been a part of it for 4 years now. Even though I grew up on the east coast, the western ranching states have drawn my heart and I want to make my career out there. I am so blessed that the Dude Ranch Foundation decided to help me in my college goals!
