|My sweet husband called me on my birthday last year to tell me he had won tickets to the World Equestrian Games in Lexington Kentucky.|
Not sure who they are! They were walking the cross country course early one morning.
They had so much team spirit! Our hotel was covered in Orange and I think the majority of the country was here in support of their team. What a fun group of people to hang out with!
I have suggested that my husband enter every contest available and win us tickets to the next WEG in Normandy in 2014. I can only imaging this event is as close to the Olympics as you can get!
We also visited Old Friends Retirement Farm and got to meet Bull in the Heather and Gulch. Its a beautiful place doing a wonderful service to these old guys who deserve retirement for all they have given of themselves to their owners and fans.
Took a detour to Churchill Downs and saw Secretariats jockey Ron Turcotte. He was there to sign the starting gate used in the movie. The museum was amazing and had a huge Secretariat exhibit for the opening of the movie. Out back they had a memorial for 8 belles...that made me cry.
I will have to post on the art that was everywhere! The streets of Lexington were covered as well as the Kentucky Horse Park. It was an amazing experience!
