Tuesday News & Notes from Cavalor

I had a conversation with a friend last night who somehow, magically, braided a whopping 54 horses over the weekend at Twin Rivers. I messaged her and asked how in the world she managed that, which she replied to with a Snapchat of some completed braids around 4 a.m. Somehow, she’s gotten her timing down to a science and was able to, sleep notwithstanding, get all 54 horses braided beautifully. If that isn’t dedication and love for the sport, I’m not sure what is. Just one of the many things I love about this sport and the people in it.
