The Road Leads to Lexington

Adventures in Saddle Seat

 

Stepping Stone Farm rider Reagan Upton rode in the Saddle Seat World Cup, July 4-6, Lexington, KY. I went to cheer.

Lexington street scenes.

Lexington shopping. My traveling companions were kind enough to let me get in touch with my inner shopasaurus.
Old Kentucky Chocolates
Joseph-Beth Booksellers
Commotion! Consignment Riding Apparel
Freedman’s Harness
What can I say, I am predictable [OKC: 7 Ways To Dodge Nostalgia, J-B Logistics: Shipping, Lexington, sorta]. Commotion has the added bonus of having great prices on hunter/jumper clothes because most of their clientèle is not interested. I bought two pairs of jodphurs, two pairs of britches, & a pair of gloves. Freedman’s is worth going into for the smell alone. I bought a show belt.

Lexington nature. Raven Run Nature Sanctuary. Let’s go on a walk, she says. It’ll be fun, she says. After an endless slog through a forested sauna, we scenically overlooked the Kentucky river. It was pretty. I’ll grant that.

Lexington hotel. Lyndon House Bed & Breakfast. Lovely house, good food, charming innkeeper. No promo arrangement, just a nice stay. I chose the house specifically because it is around the corner from where I used to stay during Rolex [Kentucky Memories, 7 Ways To Dodge Nostalgia].
