We’re here and riding!

We were on the road to Kentucky early Tuesday morning!

The trip was nice and easy wth our new friends Jason and Deb Danley.  Their daughter Megan is a 6′, 15 year old (nice!) who is showing a really cute grey mare, Abby.  I’ll get a picture up for you ASAP.  Howdy even drank water and ate some Purina Outlast on the road.  Excellent!

We kept the horses at Crimson King Farm on Tuesday night so that they could stretch their legs in the bluegrass.  They were loving it!

Our rental house, Crimson King and the Horse Park are right next to each other!

We met Lauren Turner through my friend Bridget Bryson, who trains with her.  Lauren won the Most Wanted Thoroughbred last year and is just sweet as the day is long.  I told her about Howdy’s tension and she loaned us this acupuncture blanket that she won as one of the prizes for MWT.  Howdy was loving it.  Here he is enjoying it.

The below video starts with his hanging lower lip during acupuncture, as well as the slobber he is producing from bingeing on clover last night at Crimson King, LOL.  Jay also videoed some of our warm up in the covered arena.  Howdy was very tight, but settled down a bit and did some reasonable work.

Now we’re having lunch back at the house with the dogs!  Back to the KHP in a few minutes to do a jump school in the jumper ring and maybe a little bit of a technical lesson with Russell Littlefield who is last year’s RRP Working Ranch winner!
