One more note about the World Equestrian Games in Lexington. I heard the region closed schools for at least a couple of days so that kids could attend. This scene shows just one of the groups gathering at Alltech Village to begin the tour. This weekend will feature Para Dressage, Driving, Vaulting and a bit more Jumping, plus the closing ceremonies with Lyle Lovett, among others.

Probably one of the interesting sidelights for me is the mingling of so many different types of horse people. Royalty, local stars, stable hands and daydreamers all shared in the atmosphere and found at least some common ground. Perhaps that’s one of the truly major accomplishments of an event such as WEG.
