Lindsay Maxwell The Carolinas Equestrian 01 “Be kind; be gracious,” begins equestrian and philanthropist Lindsay Maxwell of Aiken, South Carolina.  “Always remember and appreciate those who make the competitions possible, from your trainer and grooms to the in-gate staff, jump crew and show management.  A few benevolent words with these incredibly busy and hard-working people go a long way.  This translates to all facets of life – take time to notice, acknowledge and appreciate those around you.”
