Bridles and Bits


This Saturday is a huge day when it comes to horse racing. The 136th running of the Kentucky Derby will take place at Churchill Downs.

Along with the 85th running of the Virginia Gold Cup which is held at Great Meadow.

Whatever your plans might be...if you are going to the Derby or Gold Cup or just planning on watching the races from home, or at a party...have a fantastic time.

Happy May Day! xx

Yeah! It is difficult to explain how big of a deal this weekend is for those who hail from the Bluegrass state. The kids are off school and the city of Louisville literally shuts down to celebrate for the weeks leading up. It's fabulous! Enjoy this special weekend, what are your plans?? Cheers!
