US Airways - November 2012 - (Page 38)

explore T 38 NOVEMBER 2012 HORSE COUNTRY ucked in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in South Carolina, The Red Horse Inn has one whopper of a Secret — as in Secretariat’s great-granddaughter, Secret. Part of our stay at this AAA Four Diamond B&B included watching innkeeper/horsewoman Mary Wolters take Secret through her morning exercises — not so easy given that the horse is feral. The breeder had allowed Secret to stay in her pasture and “just be a horse,” which is fine until A fall weekend getaway at The Red Horse Inn someone wants to ride her. So Mary has taken on the task of training Secret through natural horsemanship (think The Horse Whisperer). We marveled as Mary — a jockey-sized 5’2” — coaxed the large buckskin mare to trot around the ring, patiently pausing as the horse sprung into fits of bucking. It was better than the rodeo. Finally, once Secret had calmed down and completed her exercises, Mary rewarded her with lemon-lime Gatorade, some brushing, and a cool splash under the hose. Mary’s quest to train Secret is synonymous with the development of The Red Horse Inn property — all 192 acres of it. For her 21st wedding anniversary, her husband and fellow innkeeper, Roger, gave her a strand of Walmart pearls and a used bulldozer. PHOTOS COURTESY OF THE RED HORSE INN
