WIHS is a Wash

 The Washington International Horse Show came to a close yesterday and just in time.  Talk about having horses wash down the streets of downtown D.C.  Most of those horses are well on their way to Lexington, KY for the last of the big "indoor" shows - what is now the National Horse Show (at the KY Horse Park).  Thank goodness it is not being held in Madison Square Garden like it once was.

Kudos to the young prodigy, Reed Kessler, for knocking out the competition once again where she topped off an incredible year with yet another blue ribbon in a big class, by winning the $100,000 President's Cup Grand Prix.  She rode her chestnut Cylana to the win in her first try on this big stage which also happens to be an FEI World Cup Qualifier.  

Let's hope everyone stays safe these next few days. Things are indeed looking very ugly in MD, PA, NJ and NY.  Hunker down everyone.  Mother nature's wrath is again upon us!
