Cindy met Scott Rawson at a New Year’s Eve party. Neither was planning to go out that night, but got talked into going dancing by their roommate. The rest is history. They were married a year and a half later in Brookfield, Connecticut. Scottie didn’t know one end of a horse from the other, but after two years of life married to an international eventer, he has become a critical member of the CR Event Team. Scottie combines great patience with a wry British sense of humor to help Cindy weather the inevitable ups and downs of top level competition. Although he’s a nuclear engineer by training, we’re told there’s no one better at putting in studs on a muddy day, or handling the glycerine bar on dirty saddles!
