....to my bestie, Kelsey, and her amazing horse, Pirate! They recently finished their 3rd (or 4th?) Intermediate at The Fork Horse Trials back in early April. Pirate is a $600 OTTB that Kelsey walked off the track in Ohio one day after his last race, loaded him on her trailer, drove all the way home to South Carolina, and the rest is history.
Here is the video of a good portion of her cross-country ride. She has done this ALL herself. I'm so proud of them! For a horse who had never jumped before she bought him, who has very little experience at this level, and has not faced a course as challenging as The Fork.....well, he sure was looking for and pulling her to every fence out there. So, as Kelsey would say, "Goooood boyyyyy, Pirate!!!"
