We were very excited to host the Rico Christmas celebration this year, and to see our wonderful friends outside of the horse barn and riding arena. Upholding tradition, it was a pot luck party, and as always, the excellent cooks on our team provided a large variety of outstandingly delicious appetizers and desserts. The evening also included a fun gift exchange interspersed with lots of laughter, and unusually, a visit from an amazing local magician and current law student, that we have known for many years, Joey.
