Wentworth Hunter Pace - June 6, 2021

After Margaret and I had such a fun time at the fall hunter pace, we opted to go again this spring! This time, while I rode Rejoice again, Margaret rode her horse Jester and had a friend ride Ladyhawke. All Kennebec Morgans!! Jester and Rejoice have the same dam and Jester and Lady share the same sire. Unfortunately instead of a lovely late spring day, we had one of the first intensely hot and humid days of the year. It was definitely a bummer, but the ride was mostly in the shade of the woods and we had a great time!  most of the fences were 3' coops but we found a small log and this hay to jump haha Until we didn't. 😑 We brought along a third friend who rode Margaret's older mare, Ladyhawke. She's a good rider but hasn't known Ladyhawke for very long and didn't realize how much of a cranky boss mare she could be at times. She kicked Jester right in the front leg just about halfway through the ride, and while the cut itself ended up not being a big deal in the

Cornish Horsemen's Day

I have marshaled at Cornish Horseman’s Day for many years now. This year it was held on Sept. 12, 2009. It is a fun day of racing at the local track here in my town, known as the Cornish Trotting Park at the Cornish Fairgrounds. Many amateur horsemen and women are given the chance to try their skills at harness racing. This year's event benefited the Cornish Fairgrounds Restoration Fund.

In the past, I have marshaled as a member of the SPHO-Maine. Because I am no longer a member, I had not planned to marshal this year. However, Diann the organizer called just a week before the event to ask if the Standardbred Performance Society was interested in sending any volunteers. WHY SURE! It seemed as though SPHO-Maine had no marshals to send, so SPS was invited instead!

So both Shelly and McKeever joined Dreamy and I for the day. We had such a blast! I love to marshal and meet-and-greet with the crowd. It was an overcast day with a slight drizzle, but despite that, we had a great time together! Plus the infield is a GREAT place to canter! :)
