My mom is great at picking winners at the race track. This is a picture of one of my dear friends from Minnesota, Heather and my mom. By their big smiles, you know they picked the winners. I am not a big gambler, but I do enjoy doing a $1 exacta box on most races. An exacta is picking the first and second place horse and if you box it, it can come in in either order. So a dollar exacta box would cost you $2. My friend Heather grew up doing hunter/jumper and dressage. I met her back in high school and we have re-connected recently
and I was thrilled to hear that she went to Equissage to get her certification for equine massage. She is pictured here giving Rocket Man (the pony) a little love. She worked on Ground Candy after his race and you wouldn't believe how he was stretching and leaning in to it. He was just in heaven. I am hoping she continues to stop in at Canterbury to drum up her business. I think the horses on the track could all use a well deserved massage. I would love to hear if any of my blog readers have any personal experience or thoughts on equine massage. Also, if there is anyone in Minnesota that needs some equine massage done, I can get you in touch with Heather.
