I was about 8 or so and my parents got me riding lessions at St Francis Riding academy. I got two lessons on a partly blind white horse named Censation. Uon completing the lesson, we were instructed to line up our horses in the center of the huge area, dismount, and leave allowing for the next group to come in. As I walked out, Censation followed me out...he was corrected and put back in line. I was in love. Then, I got the news that there would be no more lessons...the place had burned to the ground! I am now 67 and still wonder if Censation made it out of that building but can fine no info about it...if you know anything more...please email me...thanks
