2008 News:

2008 USEF PONY FINALS!

Congratulations Sarah Smith & Happy Ending!
25th Overall in the Small Greens at the 2008 USEF Pony Finals!

We had a GREAT time!  We rented an RV and camped at the Kentucky Horse Park.
We were able to tour a farm with famous retired Thoroughbred race horses (Old Friends Farm), visit the well known Claiborne Farm,
watch thehorses "breeze" at Keeneland and even meet a couple famous jockeys (Robert Ussery, a Hall of Fame jockey, and
Jean Cruget who rode Seattle Slew to the Triple Crown victory!).  We also visited all the sights within the horse park,
watched the pony auction and of course had to make s'mores at the campsite!  We can't wait till next year!


Be sure to see the scrapbook at the barn for a lot more pictures!
