Tribute To Dottie Elfers
Dottie Elfers (pictured with her Andalusian gelding, Viento) was a long-time supporter of The Baroque Horse of the Midwest. Known for her warm heart, upbeat personality and wonderful humor, she was loved by all who knew her. Dottie had a kind word for everyone and her presence was always the highlight of our show.
Dottie was a gifted and talented horsewoman. Whether driving or under saddle, she always had an impeccable turn-out and a smile on her face. Her sportsmanship was equal to none and she always promoted good-will and camaraderie. She was truly an inspiration to all!
Dottie was taken from us way too soon, having lost her hard-fought battle to breast cancer several years ago. But, she will remain in our hearts and thoughts forever.
The Dottie Elfers Memorial Perpetual Trophy will be awarded to the winner of the Regional Champion Open Andalusian/Lusitano Native Tack and Attire class. This award was kindly donated by Gareth A. Selwood.
