Here are some of my favorite shots from behind the scenes at expo this past weekend. The first one is of me, Miles, and Dewey in the Stadium arena on Thursday shortly after we arrived. We toured the facility so that we were all comfortable with riding in the various locations.
Some of the Bit of Honey Crew in the stands in the Events Center
Miles spent a good bit of time in the tack stall resting on his dog bed. Periodically he would poke his nose out the front to see if his services were needed elsewhere in the barn or on the grounds.
Dewey was sporting the OTTB saddle pad so people would know he was a retired racehorse.
Dewey also assumed that the trash can was another obstacle to be mastered. This is what happens when I teach my horses to be brave in the face of new things - even a trash can is worth investigating to see if it might yield up any horse cookies.
Dewey made lots of faces at the expo, his "smile" is priceless.
We all liked the Westin hotel, but Miles may have enjoyed the hotel room the most. He doesn't often get to sleep on beds! He also was a good photography assistant helping Kim H. with her camera in the evenings.
I had to schedule time to lie down so that I was horizontal to take pressure completely off of my back. Miles was always a willing snuggle buddy.
Dewey laid down in his stall on Saturday morning so he could rest up for the big Equine Comeback Challenge.
Our tack stall was a fun place for everyone to gather to read about Bit of Honey and view the posters from Dewey and Highboy's stalls.
