Pet-friendly hotel to rethink its policy after woman checks in with horse

One horse lover wanted to test a hotel’s pet policy after discovering one receptionist said it didn’t discriminate.

Lindsey Partridge, 31, told the reporter she was driving down from Ontario to Kentucky Horse Park, when she decided to check into the Supreme 8 hotel.

“We left at like 3 in the morning and when we got down there, the hotel is before you get to the horse park,” Patridge recalled. “We figured, we may as well stop and unload our luggage.”

That’s when she spotted a dog in the lobby. She said she remarked to the receptionist that she didn’t realize the hotel had a pet policy and joked she had a few horses outside.

“The receptionist said, ‘Oh, I don’t care. Sure, bring them in!'”

Astonished, Partridge figured she would, taking a few funny photos that have since earned attention on Facebook with more than 2,000 reactions. She unloaded her 5-year-old thoroughbred named Blizz, noting that “she was the easiest to get off the trailer.”

Some hotel guests “were pretty surprised, but they all knew it was fun,” the horse owner recalled. “I hope that this shows people that horses really can be quiet, calm and nice.”

The owners of Supreme 8 confirmed the incident to ABC News. Still, they clarified their pet policy in a statement, “We did not know she was going to bring the horse into the facility. We are pet-friendly and it is [for pets] 25 pounds and under. We had no knowledge of it being in the room.”

So I arrived in KY and checked in. Blizz (Here Comes Adri) likes the room. Only a $10 pet charge! We compete together at 8am in Field Hunter for the Retired Racehorse Project Thoroughbred Makeover.

Still, the funny incident seemed to be good luck for Blizz, who earned third place in the trail competition and sixth in the field hunter competition.
