Helen's proud mother shared the Ashdown story with the children's grandfather and me. A beautiful story from a beautiful island with considerate, loving people.
An additional bit of information about Miss Helen Ashdown she is an accomplished horsewoman, winning several medals in a recent Kentucky horse show, riding a full-sized horse and communicating with him magnificently with whispers from her saddle.
Thank you for providing this beautiful experience for our children and grandchildren.
Marie M. and Cecil S. Ashdown
