April 29, 2019 – We just spent an exciting week in Kentucky at a spectacular assortment of equestrian events! Here are some of the highlights:
- Catching closing day at Keeneland Racecourse was amazing, meeting with famous racehorse painter Robert Clark and being invited to sit in racetrack owner Frank Stronach’s box provided us with a beautiful view of this historic facility.
- Attending the inaugural Horse Industry Safety Summit by the University of Kentucky’s Ag Equine Programs, Saddle Up Safely, Pony Club, Retired Racehorse Project and other partnering organizations helped keep up to date with the latest safety information and research.
- Meeting with the National Thoroughbred Racing Association (NTRA) to discuss equine safety at racetracks and learn about the differences in riding crops and which one is the most harmless to horses.
- Spending time at the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event at the Kentucky Horse Park should be on everyone’s bucket list. Arguably the one of the most spectacular shows in the world, we were thrilled to see the fabulous riders with their brave horses compete in Dressage, Show Jumping, and the daunting Cross Country course.
- Rising before dawn, we joined our friend who works the gap at the Churchill Downs backstretch in the morning to watch horses train for the Kentucky Oaks and the Kentucky Derby.
- Seeing demonstrations of stunning off the track Thoroughbreds ready for their next career at the New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program’s fourth annual Open Barn and BBQ event was a inspirational. Held at New Vocations’ Lexington facility at Mereworth Farm, we met many new people who support OTTBs including famous jockeys Rosie Napravnik and Hall of Famer John Velazquez.
- Completing our action packed trip to the Bluegrass State was a visit to Old Friends to see many of horse racing’s retired superstars. Old Friends also raises awareness of all equine in need. It was a perfect way to end a spectacular week in Kentucky. We will be posting pictures this week!
