Prospect and my high school was right by there. Although it was closing weekend, it was seriously such a fun day and we couldn’t have asked for better weather. I’m really glad my dad came along because we called him the expert and he gave us a tutorial of how to play. Too bad we didn’t earn any winnings.

Special shout out to Mike, America’s Best Racing Brand Ambassador, for being so inviting and giving us behind the scenes looks at the track. There’s so much to see and do from top notch fashion and exciting action on the track at Arlington. It was really fun seeing a race up close and even feeding a horse a peppermint. We all had a blast and are looking forward to next season already!

On My High Horse

Yup, I was definitely on my high horse. My horse’s name was Grande and boy oh boy was he muy muy grande. My cousin, Kristina, decided to ride horses to celebrate her birthday and it was one of the greatest ideas of all time. At first I really didn’t know how to “drive” Grande and after a few kicks, my lazy and attitude horse picked up speed. At one point, we passed this grassy field and I just wanted to get off the path and let my horse ride free. That obviously didn’t happen, considering I’ve had at this point half an hour of riding under my belt. I have a feeling that you might see another post about riding again, so just wait for it…

P.S. sorry for the some non-focused pictures. I know I shouldn’t have, but riding and taking pictures was really hard. Don’t worry no human or horse was harmed on the trail, even though I just wanted to ride off into the sunset (no sunset was in sight-it was bright daylight). Clearly, my imagination has taken over this post and too many romantic comedies have been instilled in my head… sigh.
