Muddy Chariot Racing











The 2011 Cutter and Chariot Racing World Championships at the Golden Spike Event Center in Ogden were quite muddy this year, as it snowed all morning. Mostly good times.

I did witness one of the Weldon Racing team's horses collapse on the track at the end of a race (last photo). I am still unsure of why this happened - the horse was conscious and sedated by the vet before being taken away in a trailer. My hope is the horse was not severely injured and will not have to be euthanized. Heartbreaking.
