    One of the Budweiser Clydesdales was stabled next to my horse when my barn hosted the 8 horse hitch when they were in town. Does that count??

    And not nice in the slightest. Ask me about the first mare he bred... my ex worked at the first farm he stood at and witnessed what happened in the shed. Wow... so glad he's a pasture bred stallion now.

I also got to take care of this Appy cross that was an alternate for the US Eventing team - this was all in 1996. He was very cool, and very much had that Appytude.
    I did the same thing! Awesome opportunity and I still vaguely remember it! I was a youngen in 96'! I also meet the USA dressage team and horses.

    I rode a grumpy old gent named Double Call in his latter years. I loved that horse! He was a pretty successful Working Hunter in his day. I was told he was Working Hunter Champ at NHS at some point? Mid 1980's I would think.

    One summer, I had the pleasure of riding Zola Da Virro's Grand Prix horse, Shogun. He was a cool horse.

    To phrase this with some humor... he was more into getting an Oral report than hanging out with the working end.



    She was cut up though... Though I believe she did catch to him.

    I haven't ridden many famous horses but I've looked after a lot. I've handled Money Talks when he was retired, and I lived in the loft apartment of the farm where Monopoly was kept. Money was a sweet old man, and Monopoly used to wake me up at 3am when he ran out of hay!

    I also worked on a Fjord breeding farm that stood one of the top studs in NA. He was not a nice horse!

    I rode my first piaffe on JB Andrew, the first Mustang to get to FEI levels. I helped care for him in his dotage and stood with Kelly the day the sweet old fellow had to be put down.
