Here is Tommie Turvey and Ace during a clinic at the Maryland Horse Expo 2008.
Tommie is at the Maryland Horse Expo outside of Baltimore. He is doing demos on training. They said it snowed about 5" on Thursday, but was really nice today. They sent me photos of Tommie's first demo. They'll have more on Saturday. If you are in the area, stop in and say hello. I'll post more photos when I get them. Tommie has 7am and 9am media spots on local Baltimore tv stations tomorrow, so you might see him then also. Wish I was there, but I had to stay back here to take care of the horse, farm, and western store. It is freezing here! About 15 below zero... Ride Fast... Take Chances! karen

The Discovery Channel film crew gets a shot of the racing chariot with the host and co-host.
This weekend was really warm. It went from 11 degrees below zero wind chill and 20" of snow to 50 degrees and lots of melting snow. It was a perfect weekend for the Discovery Network to bring its film crew and hosts of Weapon Masters to our facility for a 3 day shoot. It was awesome. They featured the archery from the battlegrounds where the soldiers would shoot from the backs of the chariots. We provided the facility, horses, drivers and chariots for the shoot. It is wonderful to be able to have a facility and the notoritety to be able to bring in national tv shows and events. Double G is the perfect place. We have plenty of resources and room to make any event a success. We have been expanding from offering horsemanship training, breed shows, speed shows, fun shows, and the like. We are always looking at new ways to bring in more exciting events. We are hoping to have the likes of Troy Crumrine (Barrels) and Larry Whitsell (Gaited) here this year for clinics as well our own with Tommie and I. If you have any ideas or want to add your event, please give me a call at Double G. 815-626-3770. Thanks again for all your support. Come check out our Western Store too. We have lots of new things that you just haveta have! I love the Cruel Girl Perfume, the Ariat Terrian Boots and the Pink Toes Shirts. Ride Fast... Take Chances! karen
Here is Tommie and I helping the host and camera crew get a great shot inside the chariot. Ceasar and Spartacus were the horses and they were fast!

Just had to post one more time. 2008 will be non-stop. We have a barrel show starting at 8am and then we have inventory in the Western Store for 2 days, a video shoot for the Discovery Channel on Fri/Sat/Sun, then we head to Denver for 5 days of the the WESA market to get new product and check out cool stuff for the store, then we head to Maryland for the Expo with Tommie. Upon returning, we have production scheduled for our video, so that should round out January. If you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Happy New Year! Ride Fast... Take Chances! karen
