It was a fine cool fall day at the Kentucky Horse Park, and the Dressage horses were glorious to watch! Good food, good laughs, and good scores were had by all at the Competitors’ Party. The barns and rings were buzzing with activity. It was dark when the first competitor entered the arena, and it was well past dark when the last horse was tucked in for the night.
