Today starts a new series for Three Days Three Ways. Please welcome Simon to the staff!
He’s a hard worker
and has played key support roles on several Three Days Three Ways Road Trips including the one to Aiken, SC (Note the shopping bag. Can you blame me?).
Please welcome him as he takes a more central role starring in the new Three Days Three Ways Series:
Simon Hobknobs with Eventing’s Top Dogs!
Since we just heard from Jennifer Simmons of Middleburg, Virginia I thought it would be good timing to start with Jenn’s famed eventing dog: Cracker. Here Simon and Cracker hang outside the barn in Aiken. I like that Simon is smiling and Cracker is sporting bits of hay and dirt (classic eventing dog for sure). I think those are Jenn’s feet in Dansko’s. That brings up the topic of shoes for barn-wear which is too big a topic to get into today and warrants its own day in the sun. I think I feel an unavoidable Hunter/ Dubarry-esque debate coming on. Danskos? Ariats? Nikes? I must leave it at that and press on.
But my favorite picture is by far this one.
It makes me wish I was standing next to my sweet Ellie tacked up about to head up that lane for a hack. With Simon and Cracker, fast friends, alongside.
Thanks for spending a few minutes today with Simon and one of his new eventing dog friends, Cracker. You’ll be hearing more from him in the future and his eventing friends. Happy Thursday!
