That’s the theme of Natalie Keller Reinert’s blog Retired Racehorse. Natalie is a celebrated author (you can read an excerpt of her book “The Head and Not the Heart” on her blog). While you’re there, you can also see that she’s got tons of goodies, not the least of which are the thoughts she shares on training and her insights into life at the track.
The lead story on Natalie’s blog today is called Riding Hot Thoroughbreds and I’m her “guest blogger” of the day. As some of my readers know, Thoroughbreds are dear to my heart. You can see one of my own on Natalie’s blog, in “before and after” photos. I’ve also included my top ten tips for riding hot horses (who don’t have to be Thoroughbreds, although that’s always a great choice).
Aha, I got it to work!
Nice post on Natalie’s blog. If I had been able I would have snapped up her beautiful Bonnie when she was liquidating to move up north. Sigh…
Glad you got it to work. I have no idea why you were unable to comment yesterday.
I’m glad you enjoyed the post and thanks for your compliment.
It’s hard when one of the good ones get away, but it’s a good reminder that if you need to find a good horse, they’re out there and great opportunities exist if you’re in the right place at the right time. Like at the racetrack at the end of the season…or late October in northern New England…or at a sport horse auction when the economy is tanking.
