The Changing Leads Board of Directors and a wonderful group of volunteers were so excited to attend the 2016 Retired Racehorse Project Thoroughbred Makeover at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, KY last weekend. Not just a vendor this year, we also had several representatives in the competition.
Throckmorton and Pete Murphy competed in the hunter and jumper divisions, finishing a very respectable 11th out of 61 entries in the jumper division, and 23rd out of 60+ in the hunter division. Leonardtown and Board member Kirstin Murphy also competed in the hunter and jumper divisions, finishing in the top third in both. Check out Kirstin and Lenny's jumper round here. Graduate Capitan Futuro and Hillery Head also competed in the competitive trail riding division. Thoroughbreds find success in all types of second careers, and this event was truly a testament to that.
Photographer Jennifer Stover with Jennifer Stover Photography of Charlotte, NC attended the first day of the competition. Here are a few of our favorite moments from the weekend.
