Yesterday I got to spend an amazing day experiencing hands on work with the Standardbreds! My morning started out with some work experience in Ryan Grundy's barn with Ashley Sluggett, which included grooming and harnessing Pete (the horse with the green harness) and then joining Ryan on the jogger behind Pete for his workout around the track!
We then quickly headed to Century Downs for the afternoon to experience a typical race day with our assigned barns. I spent the day with JB Campbell's barn, where I was able to put my harnessing knowledge to the test as I got to harness Smilys Amira (horse in blue harness) for her race!
It was a fantastic day with lots of laughs, learning, and meeting new people!
Thank you to Ryan Grundy, Ashley Sluggett, and Jb Campbell's barn crew for letting me get some hands on experience!
I also want to thank Horse Racing Alberta and Olds College for setting this day up! #GetYourHeartRacing #mytrack #standardbredracing #horses #harness #groom #oldscollege #handson #lotsoflaughing #meetingnewpeople #thisismydream #horsesalldayeveryday #pete #smily #racehorsegroom #sogratefull
