We’re all feeling some pain this week as we miss our annual celebration at the Kentucky Horse Park, but if there’s one thing eventers know how to do, it’s make the best of a crummy situation. I’ve been thoroughly enjoying everyone’s nostalgia posts of Kentucky events gone by, and yesterday was full of amazing jog photos. *Almost* as good as new jog photos.
