Also, I'll be at two of the ticketed events at the Syracuse Invitational today. I'll be taking notes and photos for you. The first thing I'm attending is this afternoon at 2:30 -- "Judging the Hunter Seat Horse". And then, later today (at 7pm) is the big event -- "How It’s Done - Dressage and Jumping by George Morris, Ian Millar & Courtney King-Dye, presented by Practical Horseman." Although apparently George Morris has subsequently canceled due to illness. But in his place we'll have Anne Kursinski. I used to love watching her and Starman in the 80s. Anyone remember Starman? He was one of those few jumpers I becomed obsessed with as a kid. Him, Big Ben, Milton and Abdullah. Maybe there were a couple more, but not a lot. I wasn't as enamored with the showjumpers, but every so often one would come along to whom I would just become so attached.
And I'm dragging my poor parents along to the Budweiser World Cup Qualifier on Saturday. This, I am SOOOOO excited for. I grew up watching the National Horse Show at Madison Square Garden and by the time I was ready to attend in in NYC, it moved! So, I will finally realize another childhood dream.
