Fantastic picture.

Bodexpress was my favorite.🐴

Isabel, what a cool shot. It almost doesn't look real; its looks like a staged movie set, with everything "just so!" Well done, my friend.

That happened right in front of my group and we all cheered and clapped. Very good save.

LOVE this! What I particularly love is that Preakness people are also "regular" horse people who do "horse things" other than the flat track - and The Equiery helps to illustrate that there really is no gap between, "race horse people" and "sport/pleasure horse people." We are ALL horse people, and Kaymarie Kreidel epitomizes our universal connection. Bravo Kaymarie! Bravo Equiery!

She grabbed the rein and pulled it into her chest, the proper way to catch a football! 😅

You are famous!!

he was not about being caught!
