WEG Week TwoPosted by Animal Care Team on
Jaime and Jason McKinley report in from WEG for Team Absorbine-
Thursday was a beautiful day to enjoy being part of the horse world in Lexington. After watching Chester Weber tie for the lead in the driving competition, we decided to head back to the Alltech Experience pavilion to enjoy some refreshments. To my surprise, I recognized one of my friends and business associates among the 20,000 people walking in the other direction. My husband Jason and I had the luck and fortune of being invited to join our friends from Dover Saddlery at a reception they were hosting along with the USHJA. An added bonus was that the reception was air conditioned! After exchanging stories about the previous night’s team show jumping competition, Jason and I thanked our hosts and started our trek back to the airport for our trip home. To my good fortune, I spotted walking towards me one of my heroes, David O’Connor, who was kind enough to stop and chat. I was gushing with admiration and was so happy to have my husband meet him with me. With a beaming smile, we finally began our long trip home.
