It was a great weekend in California for the 19th annual Galway Downs International Three-Day Event. Organizer Robert Kellerhouse has a fantastic team behind him which play a massive roll in making this a top notch event. Plus, I aways love to watch and catch up with all the west coasters. Until next year!
