Hey there, I’m Miles Henry. Welcome to my slice of the internet, where I talk all things horse racing and then some. My journey into this world?

Well, it’s a bit of a story, but not the kind you might expect. It all started with my grandfather in Louisiana. He wasn’t just into horses; he lived and breathed them. And me? I was just a kid who loved being around these animals, but I didn’t really understand the depth of it all.

One day, I found myself watching a horse race with him. It wasn’t anything fancy, just a few local folks racing their quarter horses, but man, it was exciting. The energy, the speed, the sheer thrill of it caught me off guard. I remember looking up at my grandfather, seeing his excitement, and thinking, ‘This is something special.’

That moment wasn’t about the rush of the race or even the horses themselves. It was about seeing something through his eyes—understanding his passion for horses. It clicked for me right then and there. This wasn’t just a pastime; it was a way of life.

Fast forward through years of learning the ropes, from barrel racing to owning my first racehorse, and here I am, running It’s been a wild ride, filled with ups and downs, but it’s a journey I wouldn’t change for the world.

So, why am I telling you all this? Because I want you to know that what you read here comes from a place of genuine love and respect for horse racing and care. It’s not just about sharing knowledge; it’s about passing on what I’ve learned from a lifetime of experiences, just like my granddad did for me.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you find something here that sparks your interest or helps you along your own journey in the world of horses.

My Journey in a Nutshell

In the world of horse racing, every challenge is a lesson, and every horse has a story. My journey has been filled with both, from turning around the fortunes of a stubborn Thoroughbred named Ashton, who taught me the value of patience and adaptability, to making a bold decision at an auction that led to unexpected victories.

Recent trip

We recently visited Ireland and saw a lot of beautiful horses. It is a country with a long history of horsemanship. For centuries, horses have been an essential part of Irish culture and continue to play an important role today.

Multiple horse breeds are native to Ireland, and horse racing is hugely popular. In addition, horse-drawn carriages are still commonly used for transportation in some parts of the country.

This country loves horses because so many gorgeous ones are running around in the fields. Below are a few pictures of the horses I saw during my trip to Ireland.
