So I am writing this next blog from my iPhone as I am on my way to the airport. The past few days have opened my eyes to how amazing everyone is in my barn, my life and our sport. From an amazing cupcake display of true artistic talent from Mary Williams, Boyd Martin’s advice (which is too funny and controversial), and as simple as a text from OCET’s (O’Connor Event Team’s) Lauren Kieffer, I feel like we have a great group of people in this sport and in my life.
I am packed and in a rig at the moment, and we’ve already been pulled over…. SWEET. My highly tattooed driver and the pretty interesting groom that’s flying with Mr. Wetherill’s grand prix horses are good company.
The barn was a bit exciting as I left. Emma had to leave with big Phil’s horses to the ‘Daca (Waredaca), captain Kevin Keane (our top notch vet) was going down to continue his current dominance in the training level of our sport, and the brand new people that are working at the barn are being a bit thrown in to the deep end due to the fact that half our staff is either at the ‘Daca or off at weddings… nice. Gotta love TPF (True Prospect Farm)! “Ain’t no place like it.”
Well wish me luck—hopefully we make our flight thanks to the lovely cops here!
