But, hey, that means you’re a star! But surely you already knew that. Reply Ralf Schulz on August 31, 2012 at 4:19 pm that is incredible! One possibility: Laughing about it .. or it’ll show these heros again Yea Yea Reply Kay Ripley on August 31, 2012 at 12:21 pm I like it…it shows a little of it all and makes you want to attend. Really if anyone knows about horses or each one that participates in The Road To The Horse you know that there are triumphs and setbacks. We need to see that from people we look up to for direction because it shows that they are human to and that no one is perfect. It gives us inspiration to keep trying…where there is a will …there is a way! Love ya girl! God Bless….

It is enticing enough to make you want to know more about the event which is exactly what you want to do! Can’t wait, love the Lexington venue! Reply Heidi on August 31, 2012 at 10:06 am On a production standpoint it was Ok. As a fine arts angle. I did not like it. I find that clips like this that go from one short clip to anouther quickly gives me nothing. I would rather have it more flowing and laid out better. Maybe I am the odd person out on that. I find the same thing with people who make Stallion promotion videos like that. Just give me a good show run. Same on this just give me a good clip of some of the winners and a few of the spills along the way. Shows both sides of what it takes to get to the end. Reply patsy24 on August 31, 2012 at 8:51 am Watching this I did not see this as a slight on you Stacy at all. Rather I saw it as an example of the difficulties that can be encountered in training. I can understand, however, why it might be perceived that way, in which case it would be tactless. Just know that your horse wisdom and your talents are deeply appreciated and you rise way above any negativity that the ad could represent. Reply Joan Brust on August 30, 2012 at 9:56 pm I didn’t care for the ad Road to the horse is ok if you have good seats. The year I went I felt like I missed a lot. The ad stinks cuz she needed you to be the star in it. You are one of the best advocates for and trainer of horses out there. Still my favorite. Reply Lindsay on August 30, 2012 at 8:26 pm It’s cool. I would have rather seen you standing on the horses back pumping your fist in the air to end it, as the music ended !! : ) Reply JANE ARMSTRONG on August 30, 2012 at 5:58 pm We are Road To The Horse virgins !! We can’t wait to be there 2013. I hope there will be a surprise like you showing up! Reply gwen confalone on August 30, 2012 at 5:54 pm I think its a great marketing clip. Nothing like being there in person though! I have been 3 times and hope to go again someday. Reply Lakota on August 30, 2012 at 5:41 pm A side we rarely see 🙂 I plan to go next year – can’t wait. Reply Heather Stoll on August 30, 2012 at 5:39 pm Wow! Looking good… Tootie is so nice…she spent half an hour talking to my hubby when he called to say both he and I had ordered the same DVD of 2011 Road to the Horse. He woke her up but she was just as nice as could be. Reply Joe Agee on August 30, 2012 at 5:33 pm I think it’s gonna be awesome !!! Reply linda on August 30, 2012 at 5:29 pm I have been the past three years and learned so much from each event. I would go again if you were in the competition this year. Personally, I liked the smaller venue of the Miller Coliseum with fewer crowds.
