My wife breeds and sells Hay Burners. Thats what I call horses. I finally made it clear I don't want anything to do with them. She was breeding some horses on our little Farm. The rich folks were there to watch their horse bred.
I walked up with a Beer in my hand "Have to love the USA, only Country where you can drink Beer and watch a couple of Woman play with a horses Co#$.
Never asked me to help again. Actually the Olympic cross country tryouts they have in Hoke County every year. Not the Steeple Chase, the tryouts are free to attend. At the Five Points Horse Park. I live a half mile from there if anyone ever needs a free place to park. Hang out by the Double Water Jump
I do have respect for someone who will jump a +1000 pound Animal off a 9 foot wall, into 2 feet of water, then jump it up two levels to get out of the water at full speed. These Horses are bigger then your average Farm Horse.
Some pretty bad wipe outs there. But thats not why I go.
