Poor Lake Placid!
Why is it that immigration always seems
to pick on them? Yes guys, we are told that road blocks were
up which kept some barns away and there were others who got
nailed for having illegal help. Why does this happen only at Lake
Placid every year?

Arden Cone, a Sidelines contributor who has written about
her participation in the USHJA Emerging Athletes Program,
is a senior at Hollins University and spent her last semester
abroad in Sevilla, Spain. While she had an amazing
experience in Spain she also came down with a wicked case
of tonsillitis that lasted for months. Turns out Arden caught
Equine Strep from a horse she was taking care of a few days
before she left for Spain. It’s rare for a human to catch it
from a horse, but it can happen. (It is important to note that
Equine Strep is not strangles, they are two different things).
Despite a raging case of tonsillitis, Arden still enjoyed Spain
including a quick ride in Sevilla during the Feria de Sevilla,
complete with costume, before returning to the States and
having her tonsils removed. Here’s wishing you a speedy
recovery Arden.
