MJ Getting Some Exercise

Heather and I were over at the track last Saturday morning checking up on the girls (we have a filly of our own back there right now as well) and she made sure to get some photos of MARYJEAN’s exercise in the fog that morning. Enjoy!

  1. Yes Sam i couldnt agree more cant wait to se her race not as much wether she wins but that she is competitive and stays healthy!!

  2. Can I ask about the triangle piece that looks like a loose breast plate under her chin? What purpose does that serve?

    • Good question!! It’s called a Martingale. It’s purpose is to keep the horse from throwing it’s head too high while it’s running.
