IN LOVING MEMORY! (ANNA & MY GUY)
Mrs. Anna Brace Beeson was a horse lover. One of her favorite places was on the back of a horse – from a child riding across the hills west of Austin, to competing at the intermediate level in USEA sanctioned horse trials at the age of sixty and on. Never giving less than her best.
Her first horse, Rose, came to her for $75 – including the saddle. And so, the addiction began. The next fifty + years took her through countless riding adventures; countless lessons and rides, horse shows, trials, clinics, a riding safari in Kenya, new riding trails with friends, and more. She was a fixture in the horse community and could always be counted on to point out that your horse still jumped in nice form, even after dumping you at fence #4. She usually managed to get these stellar moments on film for you to re-live. Just in case.
Highlights of her lifelong enthusiasm include many ribbons and honors earned along the way as she showed throughout Texas on the hunter/jumper and eventing circuit. Not to mention, her lovely ‘Effour’ winning Reserve Champion in the Green Hunter division for 2014 year end awards. Anna shared her love of horses with everyone. She would hook up her trailer and haul horses all over Texas just for another new equine experience. Her generosity extended to volunteering countless hours for the Texas hunter/jumper, dressage and eventing groups.
It was that incredible love of horses that brought her into many of our lives.. and we will all forever cherish.
