Louisville Kentucky airport store

Just off the jet way I knew I’d entered the land of the horse. Louisville’s airport is filled with everything equine, from elegant art to silly nightwear.

The 70-mile drive to Lexington is a series of rolling fence lines, green pastures and horses.

I’m now at the Kentucky Horse Park, waiting the start of the first day of Dressage at the 2013 16th Rolex/USEF CCI**** Championship.

I’ve checked-in at the media center (pictured here) and will soon head to the Dressage arena.

Jan Byyny (Purcellville, Va.) will be riding Syd Kent at 10:24 a.m. and Lynn Symansky (Middleburg) will be riding Donner at 3:20 p.m.
