It is with great sorrow that Washington Reining Horse must share that we have lost our long time gatekeeper and club supporter, Joelle Dawson-Barker.  Joelle passed away peacefully in her sleep last Saturday night.  To say she will be missed is more than an understatement, it’s almost unimaginable.  Joelle has been a huge part of what made our shows run so smoothly and she was second to none in keeping things moving at the in gate.  She knew everyone’s name and worked tirelessly every day from dawn until the show was over and there were some very long nights.  She loved her job and it showed!

Our condolences and thoughts are with her family and friends…We love you and miss you Joelle – REST IN PEACE
