One of my all-time favorite YouTube videos is about the Diamond elite guest checking into the wrong hotel, demanding the best suite available, and space for his giraffe.
In proof that life inevitably meets satire, a woman checked into a hotel in Georgetown, Kentucky… with a horse.
Lindsey Partridge drove from Pontypool, Ontario, to the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, KY. When she was checking into her hotel, she noticed the pet policy and joked about having a horse with her.
The receptionist said they don’t discriminate, so in walked Blizz, Partridge’s horse.
Reportedly when she arrived at the hotel she noticed a dog in the lobby. She didn’t realize that her hotel — being written up as the Supreme 8 but am pretty sure is this Super 8 — took pets. She “joked she had a few horses outside.”
The woman brought out her “5-year-old thoroughbred named Blizz” because “she was the easiest to get off the trailer.”
The hotel says their pet policy only permits animals under 25 pounds and they “had no knowledge of it being in the room” but the video is proof.
When I first saw this I thought it was staged, but the hotel confirms it’s genuine and you can see a hotel staffer pulling out her camera in amazement.
The horse took 3rd in the trail competition and 6th in the field hunter competition during its stay.
