EVERYONE is arriving in Aiken for the winter/spring kick-off to the 2011 eventing season. Everyone, including Eddie!!!! Just kidding, that is a picture of Boyd Martin's wonderful world-class event horse, Neville Bardos, in his paddock after arriving in South Carolina earlier this week. I doubt Neville would appreciate being compared to my stubborn little cow horse, but I'm sure Eddie would love to be in all four of Neville's shoes right now! It is supposed to be in the 50's in Knoxville for the next few days (and no snow forecast anytime soon), so maybe Eddie and I can stage our own version of the Aiken winter training sessions here at home before too long. I'm sure he'll be psyched about that!
