If you were a horse enthusiast at all, imagine being asked if you would rather visit the Rolex three-day event or see and tour the top horse farms in the beautiful bluegrass Kentucky horse country or see some of the top sires in the current horse world and several of the years past derby winners. Imagine this. How could you decide?
While touring Coolmore’s Ashford Stud near Versailles, Kentucky, the Bits & Bytes Farm friends had the pleasure of seeing, touching and getting our photos with past Kentucky Derby winners Fusaichi Pegasus and Thunder Gulch. See our photos.
We took over 1200 photos during the Bits & Bytes Farm tour of Lexington, KY last weekend. The Rolex 3-Day Event was one of the many events we attended. Here are a few photos from the cross-country day at Rolex.
We have arrived in Kentucky and our first stop was over to Hill ‘n’ Dale to meet with their Stallion Manager Aiden O’Meara and be introduced to their magnificent stallions. Hill ‘n Dale’s stallion barns are some of the most beautiful barns in Kentucky.
There will be 47 riders from nine countries competing at the Rolex 3-Day Event. The top four riders from last year will be in Lexington, KY for Rolex, April 23-26, 2009. Watch the Show Jumping LIVE on line.
