Jeannette Bair, the 2006 senior high pledge winner generated $4,615 by asking everyone she new including friends, family, her veterinarian, trainer, co-workers, and anyone else she could think of if they could just donate $10.00. To her surprise, the wallets opened up and she received hundreds when she'd asked for ten.

Jeannette was so personally motivated to collect donations, that when her horse was injured, she didn't want to let her sponsors down, so she took one of her broodmares, Destiny FDF, right out of the field and rode her tests. For Jeannette, it was about coming down centerline as a representative for all who supported her Ride for Life day.
