Mary's Daily Dish - The Time of Our Lives at The Hermitage Classic Driving Trials!

We just had the time of our lives at The Hermitage Classic Driving Trials, near Louisville, KY at the historic Hermitage Farm. Once a breeding facility for top thoroughbred racehorses, owners Steve Wilson and Laura Lee Brown have purchased the 800 acres destined for development and created a world class driving facility. I am packing and loading today but have a more extensive story and photos to be published later this week. Meanwhile here are a few photos JJ took, and the cross country image is by my good friend Shirley McQuillan (owner of dressage HP horse Rhett).
My little ponies had an equipment malfunction (lost a rein) during dressage, but were good and finished the test and cones, and we rocked cross country to win our division, which was a piece of cake since we were the only entry in Training level pony pairs. Thanks to Sterling Graburn and Carrie Ostrowski of Gayla Driving Center.
