Walking in Her Boots : Top-Level Event Horse Groom, Lexie Thacker

“You never stop moving all day!” explained Lexie regarding her experience grooming several horses as a free-lance groom. “At the big shows I braid, groom, tack-up do the stable work, and clean tack. Sometimes I also braid on the side.” This pace is somewhat slower at the top-level shows but the atmosphere is big and there is much more at stake. Sharon Jantzen catches up with Lexie Thacker, the groom for Indy 500, to walk around in her boots for awhile.
