Day 9 of a Year Long Road Trip Along America’s Scenic Byways
Horses in Louisville
What a day! I rode a horse. Outside of about 3 trail rides over the last 17 years, I haven’t truly ridden a hunter/jumper until today. It was so fun to be back in the saddle again, though it didn’t last long as I got bucked off. At least I landed on my feet. Horse smell to me is an aroma. I love it! I could have sat at the barn all day and watched people ride. It was so hard to leave Bobby and Karen. Such a blast from the past!
For those of you who know Karen and Bobby, they have a great little barn – 9 stalls or so. Their paddocks are spectacular – 5 huge turnouts, full of grass – a horse’s dream. The horses are great – fat, pretty, and show material. They are still showing, mostly in Tennessee and in Mississippi, I think. Bobby got his big R, so he is judging a lot, and they have one investor who likes to buy horses, so he gets to go to Europe every now and then. They’ve got a great house and lucky for me an extra bed. And as always, a dog to boot.ON THE ROAD AGAIN!
