“Equus: The Story of the Horse,” a two-part series about horses, premieres this week on PBS’s Nature. Check your local listings. On my local PBS station, it airs Wednesday, January 16. Part 2 airs Wednesday, January 23.
The World Equestrian Games is returning to the US to Tryon, NC, on Sept. 10 – 23.
We can watch some of the action from the comfort of our homes. Even though Tryon is inland to the west, kind of between Charlotte and Asheville, I hope Hurricane Florence restrains her enthusiasm when she barges on into the MidAtlantic and Carolina coast. #BeSafe
Most of the action we can watch on our digital devices will be on NBC Sports Network (cable), the Olympic Channel (online and see below), and on your regular NBC affiliate but only for the show jumping on Sept. 23. The FEI live stream starts on Sept. 11.
The Asheville Citizen-Times , you need to click on the link and scroll all the way down to see the schedule, has the most comprehensive listings.
BTW, the Olympic Channel is online streaming, apparently free if you have cable. I could be wrong about that.
If I’ve left anything out or you find new information, please let me know. Thanks!
Congratulations to American Triple Crown winner Justify and all his connections, especially jockey Mike Smith! Justifiably CHAMPIONS!
Anyway, a lot of mention was made on TV yesterday of “where were you when Pharoah won the Triple Crown?”
Big corporations have taken a couple of years to do this, to update their websites to compliancy with the General Data Protection Regulations set by the European Union, a.k.a., GDPR.
As usual, the information trickled down to us little guys late enough in the game we have a few weeks before the May 25 deadline to get our acts together.
I had thought that, because I don’t sell anything here nor do I make any money from it, I didn’t need to fix this site. But between sending out notices of updates to the blog via email and the Google Analytics plug-ins, let alone requiring y’all to send me your email addresses so you can comment on posts, I realized I have to toe the line, too.
Plus, I’ve always taken the safety of both you and your info seriously.
Somehow, in a span of hours, we went from snow here in New England to 2018 Kentucky Derby week. Of course, I’m mentally ready, but not physically. Or maybe it’s vice versa? I’ve been a little distracted.
Case in point? I missed telling you about the 2018 Kentucky Derby Post Position Draw.
Penny Chenery, Secretariat’s human mom, and William Nack, the Triple Crown winner’s Boswell, at the premiere of the film “Secretariat.”
No. Wait–Bill Nack as Boswell? Really?
Way too flippant to start this piece.
Start over, Rhonda. And don’t try to get fancy. You can’t play in Bill Nack’s league.
I’m not sure anyone can.
Farewell, William Nack.
