   Classy Game, or Cici for short, is a seven-year-old Paint mare. I've had her for about a year and a half, and we show in 4-H and on my high school's equestrian team. Last April, Cici was involved in an accident at my trainer's barn, when she kicked a barn door, and her leg went all the way through the twisted metal. There was one deep gash, but it was right around the tendon and suspensory vein. Cici went lame...she wouldn't put any pressure on the leg, and she would only walk when being shoved from behind. We were afraid it had severed the tendon...in that case, she would never be ridden or shown again. But the tendon was missed by about two millimeters, and Cici fully recovered with only a scar. In September, we competed at the Washington State 4-H Fair. We were the Fitting and Showing Grand Champions of 2002...the greatest accomplishment of our career together.

    Cici is an awesome horse, and I believe she deserves to be honored. Cici is the sweetest horse I've ever known!!! She's a "people horse" - really affectionate and willing to do anything for attention. Her favorite human food is Honeycomb cereal! She doesn't really know any tricks, but she will follow me around anywhere... kind of like Tag. And if I leave her for even a second, and have someone hold her, she watches for me the whole time I'm gone.
