A horse coach tested a hotel’s pet-friendly policy by checking in a dappled grey mare.
When Lindsey Partridge was on the way to a competition from Pontypool, Ontario, Canada, she pulled in the Super 8 Hotel in Georgetown, Kentucky, USA, on October 5.
With former racehorse Blizz in tow, Lindsey, who owns Harmony Horsemanship, asks to check in and is charged a mere £7.60($10) extra to have her beloved animal stay with her.
After asking what time breakfast is, the video cuts to the horse whisperer lying on the bed with her prize horse – also called Here Comes Adri – stood next to her watching TV.
While Lindsey discusses the upcoming Retired Racehorse Project Thoroughbred Makeover the following day and how they need to get a good night’s sleep, Blizz enjoys sniffing the duvet.
Lindsey said: “When we were checking in they mentioned their pet policy.
“So, I jokingly said, ‘my horses are here, will they be allowed in’?
“The lady was really laidback, so I got Blizz off the trailer.
“My mum was staying in the same hotel so she managed to get some video of us both.”
Ultimately Blizz didn’t sleep in the hotel as she stayed in some conventional equine housing before competing in the field hunter competition and the competitive trail classes.
