For those of you who don’t live in Kentucky and haven’t been aware of all the hoopla over WEG, here’s the deal: the World Equestrian Games, or WEG for short, is kind of like the Olympics of the horse eventing world. The Games have never before been held in Kentucky, or anywhere in the US, for that matter, and so everybody around here is pretty excited.
WEG starts at the end of September and runs through mid-October at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington. During the many events there will be hundreds of booths with all things Kentucky and horsey. I am excited to say that I will be at the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation booth signing my latest book, DREAM OF NIGHT. Proceeds will go to the local chapter of the TRF, the Maker’s Mark Secretariat Center, in order to help raise awareness for their cause: taking care of Thoroughbreds after their racing career is over.
Here’s a picture of Susanna Thomas, Director of the Maker’s Mark Secretariat Center, the woman who has taught me so much about horses, the woman I thank at the end of DREAM OF NIGHT. Susanna and all the folks at MMSC/TRF work so very hard to give ex-racehorses a second chance at a wonderful life.
My book signing will be at the TRF/MMSC booth at the Kentucky Horse Park on Tuesday, September 28 from 11-1, and Thursday, September 30, from 1-3. Check back for more details as they develop!
