Louis is gaining some valuable experience in a variety of atmospheres. This time it was with Show Jumper Glenn Hartigan of Eurimports at Chattahoochee Hills. As I’ve always said, it’s not the actual competition that is the hard part, but rather the warm up area.
On one end grooms were lunging horses and cracking lunge whips like Indiana Jones! Then on the other side, there were horses zipping around getting ready for their classes. Glenn kept Louis between his aides, kept him moving forward, asked for canter changes, and had Louis focused at the job at hand. The time spent in the warm up gave Louis an excellent foundation.
Louis is like a fine wine, that gets better with time.

Former LKF Thoroughbred, More Cowbell is a shining star with his owner Matti Burns. He was a fancy youngster and a bit sassy, but he had grit and a toughness about him that I admired.
We haul off the farm weekly and always enjoy time spent at Fox Ridge Farm. Louis got a little work in on the flat with the farm’s owner Becky while I did my best to film it.
