Thursday, 25 October 2012

Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.This weekend we are lucky to have Shane Sweetnam guest blogging for us from Washington International Horse Show. Shane is one of Ireland’s best riders and a frequent sight on the Irish championships and Top League teams. He is based in the US at his and his wife’s farm Sweet Oak Farm. You can read more about Shane in our interview with his from earlier this year if you go here.

Due to some technical issues you find Shane's first blog entry under the read more button.

Hi all,

Shane Sweetnam here, sending some comments and pics from Washington International Horse Show.

The show started today and from the pictures you can see it is right in the heart of Washington D.C.This is the 3rd time I have done this show and every time their are improvements.It is beautiful stadium( its where the NBA team the wizards play), Hotels are close and there are some really good restaurants nearby.

I have 2 mares here, Siri (10 yr old SWB) and Solerina( 13 yr old ISH) and Siri was placed 7th in the first class. So not a bad start, lets see if I can improve tomorrow???

Cheers
Shane
