On June 1, Kirstin Rabe Day will return to the show ring at Devon.
It’s been a while.
Twenty years, in fact.
With her erect carriage, her spit-shined boots and gloved fingers, Kirstin will be the picture of equestrian elegance..
But beneath her finery, emotions will be churning.
I’ve made it back.
When she last competed at Devon, Kirstin, now 38, was a junior at Radnor High School. She won two ribbons.
Seven months later, she had to give up riding altogether, and with it, her beloved horse.
