Neigh-sayers welcome at this pet-friendly USA motel

Lindsey who is known as Canada's Horse Whisperer says she hopes Blizz's hotel jaunt will show how well-behaved horses can be with the right training

Horse trainer Lindsey Partridge was checking in at the Super 8 motel in Georgetown, in the U.S. state of Kentucky, when she saw there was a pro-pet policy.

Lindsey Partridge, of Kawartha Lakes, Ont., said she was travelling with three horses to the Retired Racehorse Project's Thoroughbred Makeover competition on October 4 when she stopped to check in to the Super 8 motel in Georgetown, Ky.

"The receptionist kind of said kiddingly, 'Oh I wouldn't care; you could bring them in, "' Partridge told TODAY.

"When we were checking in, and they started talking about the pet policy I jokingly said, 'Oh my horses are here, will they be allowed in?' " Partridge told The Chronicle of the Horse. She also said that race horses are "often stereotyped for being insane and hotheaded and unruly". "Because I will totally take you up on that offer"'.

Like, for instance, take them into a motel room.

The 5-year-old horse raced 17 times under the name Here Comes Adri in tracks across the United States, earning $70,000 before retiring from racing.

She said the clerk played along as she made a video simulating her check-in experience.

"I asked twice and then I quickly go get the horse before she changes her mind".

Now it's important to note that Blizz is no ordinary horse, and Partridge is no ordinary human.

"It's a positive reinforcement training program", she said. "By the fact that I keep my horses really calm, I really don't have to worry about it the same way that other people do".

After a few memorable moments at the motel, Partridge then took Blizz and her other two horses to Kentucky Horse Park, the site of the competition.

So the woman went to her trailer in the parking lot and paraded her pet Blizz through the motel.

The goal was to show that thoroughbred horses, which Partridge said have a reputation for being temperamental, can be calm even in unusual situations, she said.
