Champion Horse On Page 13

A horse from Harrison County could represent America in the 2008 summer Olympics. Horse owner and trainer Janet McCarrol has been putting her 6 year old horse Alltaire through the paces in advance of the world championships. The 6 year old jumper has won numerous events around America. MCarrol says horses that compete on this level are world class athletes "they are the jocks of the horse world" says McCarrol. The trainer, the horse and the rider work long hours getting ready to compete. According to McCarrol "it's worth it, because there is nothing like giving it everything you got".
