With the help of some fellow friends, Josh was able to bring Danielle the whole way with any suspicions. When they arrived, a sign that read “I can’t afford a horse – but I can afford a ticket to Prom…and a horse ride!”


Promposer: Josh Maceno

Eagle Eye: Describe in detail how you asked them. 

JM: I went to Glendale Stables because I knew Danielle rides a certain horse down there. Her sister Annie and I drove down with the idea and they loved it. So, Sunday the 23rd, I had 8 of my good friends help me out. Annie, her boyfriend Dill Osterhout, Tanner Briggs, and Grace Gensimore rode  down with my sign while Gary Weaver and I kept Danielle busy. After they left, Nate Hormell texted me saying there were some jeep trails in Glendale that he wanted to go check out. Danielle, Gary, and I followed Nate and Makenzie Stauffer up to the ‘jeep trails’ and went straight to Glendale Stables, where the Prom? sign was on the horse that she always rides. then, we all went horseback riding.
