So, much to my surprise, I just qualified, and am thinking I might go (last chance to ride at KY HP, lots of barnmates and friends plan to go, etc).
I haven’t gone in many years, but the last time I went, to the Carolina Horse Park, I was able to find an awesome paddock at a fellow COTHer’s place not far away for 2 field boarded geldings.
Any KY peeps have any suggestions for something similar this time around? My horse will be MUCH happier out for the duration, and I can probably get a horse buddy to split the cost and keep him company. We are very good barn guests and will have a big support crew and tack stalls so this would literally be two horses chilling in your unused or sacrifice paddock for a few days and a daily trailer trip in and out.
