I was recently in Utah in Promontory Ranch (near Park City) on vacation with my family. We brought the kids (my two and my two nephews) to see the horses at the Equestrian Center one morning. This is a MUST DO while visiting Promontory. The staff there are unbelievably nice, especially Jose, who told us about so many of the horses while he was cleaning out their stables.
We got a visual treat as well, Nabisco was due for new shoes. The process was really fun to watch, and Nabisco just stood there the whole time without any sign of pain or discomfort. He’s such a trooper. Later we were told by his owner that he’s a “candy man”. He loves his peppermints! I hope they gave him a lot of treats after this! 🙂
We actually went BACK to the center the day after this to show the family members the horses since they were golfing the day before. We were able to give Nabisco some peppermints, which he loved, of course. He made us laugh… after we’d give him a mint, he’d start throwing his head up and down in protest that we weren’t continually feeding him. It was hilarious!
I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do. I don’t know much about horses, but after visiting them here at the Equestrian Center, I fell in LOVE.
