Elizabeth Welch (L) and Kristina DeWitt bring in horses because of an impending thunder storm at Burnt Meadow Stables in Freedom, New Hampshire July 4, 2011. Owner Sherry Donabedian bought the facility in Freedom in 2001 and runs a successful business of boarding horses, training horses, offering lessons to riders, competing and providing sleigh rides in the winter. The stables weathered the worst economic downturn in the United States since the Great Depression said Donabedian, despite a dip in lessons to "average families, who cut out recreation activities to save money". Voters in the Iowa caucus and the New Hampshire primary will be the first to cast ballots in the upcoming U.S. Presidential race. REUTERS/Brian Snyder (UNITED STATES - Tags: SOCIETY POLITICS)
