In Memory of Bridgette Twining
Tom and Natalie Twining invite you to join them in a fun eventing show to celebrate the life of their daughter, Bridgette. In September 2011, Bridgette's life was cut short after an automobile accident. Her greatest love was riding her horses, jumping and showing. Cathy Tindall has graciously offered to host the event at her facility,
Pine Meadow Farm in Delano, MN.

The mention of my child's name may bring tears to my eyes,
But it never fails to bring music to my ears.
If you are really my friend,
let me hear the music of her name!
It soothes my broken heart and sings to my soul!
