Favorite Vacation

My favorite vacation is one I am lucky enough to go on every year in April.  Every year at the end of April we head on the annual pilgrimage to Kentucky for the Rolex Kentucky 3 Day Event.   Really did you expect my favorite vacation to not include horses?  This past year was an even better time as we had the opportunity to see the Kentucky Cup Dressage and Show Jumping events in addition to the 3 Day. 

How could you not love a weekend where you can see top horse and rider combinations performing one tempi changes, pirouettes, other Grand Prix dressage movements, see horse tackling some of the most difficult cross country questions, and them finish off the weekend with some awe-inspiring stadium jumping.  It truly was an amazing weekend.  And I can't wait to go back in 2011.  And who knows maybe someday, I'll be riding there...
