Here is a link to access live video of the 2011 Kentucky State Fair World Championship Horse Show: http://www.asha.net. Thanks to my long time friend, Barry, in South Carolina for sending me this link.
I watched a class this morning on my computer and saw another long time horse friend of mine place in the ribbons. I haven’t seen Terri since the late 1970’s when we moved from Ottawa to Vancouver, B.C., but we have since linked again courtesy once more of Barry and the internet.
It was a treat to see these high quality Hackney and Saddlebred horses – they were in short supply in British Columbia. In fact, I’m not even sure anybody rode or kept these breeds there.
I think at one time a bunch of Costa Rica horse people went to Ontario and bought Hackneys to improve the quality of their Paso Finos which are all over the place here in Costa Rica.
