On the Road Again

We’re back on the Road with the literacy project. Just finished the Little Rock, Jonesboro, Bentonville, Feyetteville, and Ft. Smith shows and now on to Tucson. Whew …you know Alec and all the hardworking cowboys and cowgirls are getting a bit tired by now, good thing those horses keep ’em moving! Rolling along is a great place to be sometimes anyway. You might just leave a bit of that “not too important” stuff behind for awhile.

Monday May 2 we’ll be at Children’s Hospital in Tucson visiting some of the kids that can’t make the show the next day at 10:30 am. After all that wraps up we’ll head out to Phoenix for the Friday, May 6, 10:30 am show. We get a little break to watch the Kentucky Derby on May 7 while we drive all the way across country to Lexington, KY for the noon show on May 11 at the HorsePark.

After that everyone needs to head home for more events at Arabian Nights. The school year is coming to an end soon but you’d think it was already summer in Florida, it’s been ninety degrees everyday for a couple weeks already! It’ll be good to be home but always it’s a bit of a happy / sad feeling. Fun but tired … you know what I mean!?

Hope we see you here or there this year or soon. Write us a note anytime, just to say “Hi” and happy trails to you too!

Your friend,
Tim Farley

Black Stallion Experience Opens This Weekend!!

The new Black Stallion Experience opens this weekend at the Kentucky Horse Park!
It’s an all new and beautiful wing of the Museum at the Horse Park just outside of Lexington, KY.

The special exhibt “A Gift of the Dessert” will only be there a few months but the Arabian wing that features the “Black Stallion Experience” is part of the permanent galleries.

If you’re lucky enough to be there this summer for a show, the Rolex or the World Equestrian Games … or if you’re just visiting on a drive down I-75 … take a look!
The Black Stallion is your guide through the world of the Arabian horse from the dessert to the show ring.
We hope to get some pictures of the gallery soon but it’s been such a fast and secret ride we don’t have any yet.

If you DO get to visit be sure to write us back and tell us what you think.

Check back soon for more news and photos!
