Horses Up!

There is one southern tradition that I love...last Saturday I joined a few friends for the annual Gold Cup races. These horses are true athletes, strong, beautiful and full of grace and power. Steeplechase races consist of jumping fences, ditches and water over the rolling countryside while running at speeds of 25+mph. Races are usually a couple miles long. Unreal. Steeplechase races put track racing to my opinion (although I do watch track racing).

Though I was busy eating cheese and deciding which horse to bet on...I managed to take a picture or two.

If anyone is interested in learning more about how/where to rescue some of these amazing animals after they are retired please contact me so I can pass on some great companies.
