Can-do-ness

Bernice Ende visited our school on her way to NY with her two horses.  She was brought up to believe that anything is possible if you have the attitude of "can-do-ness."  She's an amazing person who rides literally thousands of miles at a time with two horses.  She is an outstanding example of grit. Check out her website!
