There’s not a lot of self-examination among many of the people who compete at and attend horse shows, because to do so would be to question their own culture.
To hell with moving “upstate” and starting “bed and breakfast.” I was moving to Alaska and starting a hotel. Later on in the day, when I read about those Shetland ponies wearing sweaters, it became absolutely clear that they had to be hired to work in the hotel. Don’t worry - we will make sure they are wearing adequately insulated parkas.
