There’s something about the Kentucky Horse Park that feels like opportunity and Springtime, am I right? I’ve been there in the summer months, April for the KYLR3DE and in the winter with a fresh coat of snow. Regardless of the temps, in my mind it’s always in the 60’s or 70’s and full of Spring blooms in Lexington. (A girl can dream, can’t she?)
As a young company, this year will be Trauma Void’s second year in attendance at the Kentucky Land Rover 3-Day Event, and we’re excited to the energy that comes with the crowd of the horse park. They call it the best weekend all year, and it is a ton of fun! In 2018, we were showcasing the EQ3 to so many spectators for the first time and it was so exciting to measure all of their noggins and share with all of the reasons I love Trauma Void helmets. This year, we’ll be showing off another recent release that I’m still very excited about, so be sure to swing by the Back on Track USA booth for a member of our team to measure you.
There’s something about coming back to a familiar show grounds whether you’re there to show or to shop that hits the soul with an unmeasurable nostalgia. Personally, I think if you melted down the scents of arena footing, shavings, hair spray, and a hint of sticky bun into a candle, it could easily be labeled Horse Show Time. Each flicker of its wick would be accompanied with memories of horse show mishaps and fun times with my horse show family. It comes to no surprise that when our brigade of box trucks pulled into the Ohio State Fairgrounds, memories of unloading my horse in the pouring rain, the kindness of a stranger giving my mom and I some White Chicken Chili, and a zoo of exotic animals released in the greater Columbus area in 2011, come rushing into my memories.
