Stacy’s Video Diary: Jac- Episode 41-Why didn’t Stacy own Roxy? Or Jac?

Ever wondered why Stacy didn’t own Roxy? Or Jac?

Meet Greg, the man who took a risk and bought Roxy for the Westfall’s to train. Greg went from trail riding and camping to owning one of the most famous horses in the world. What was that like and how did it happen?

Listen for

  • The reason why Stacy & Jesse didn’t buy Roxy.
  • Why Stacy doesn’t have regrets
  • Why Greg kept buying Roxy a secret…(I love Jesse’s response to that one, “Well, it turned out OK.”)
  • The fact that Greg owns Roxy’s mother and full sister, two of Roxy’s daughters and Roxy’s granddaughter
  • How many foals did Roxy have?
  • Funny stories about owning Roxy….
  • What was it like owning a famous horse?

    It’s so nice to see the relationship you guys have with Greg, he’s a kind soul and I cracked up when he said about not telling anyone for a while that he bought Roxy. I too held back telling people when I bought my horse (OTT) for fear they would think I’m crazy but it turned out to be the best thing I ever did. Greg couldn’t have chosen better people to work with 🙂

    I meet Greg at RTTH when you were in the arena riding Roxy and he really made me smile with how he excited he was to OWN her and be friends with you, He didn’t say you were his trainer he said you were his friend

      …”He didn’t say you were his trainer he said you were his friend”…that choked me up! Thanks for posting it:)

    Laughing, really, at my self for thinking this but: What does Greg do? Haha. I mean what does he do to earn enough money to invest in horses, their care and training with you?
    You are all truly blessed.

    It is an enormous endeavor, and when I was paid to ride and show, I was thankful. But I wonder if there would be any possibility for me in the future (as hopefully a Veterinarian, and entrepreneur) to own my own horse, train and show. Or because the timing is right, an owner like that would invest in a horse like that for me.

    I am still young so it just always felt awkward for me. Thank you for your insightful blog posts!!!

    A beautiful story of a beautiful working relationship that blossomed into so much more. God bless you, Jesse, and Greg for this interview. Loved seeing the idyllic pastures filled with mares and foals and the gorgeous green countryside of my home state, Ohio.

    Stacy, this is an exceptional interview! Listening to Roxy’s story and hearing about the lives she’s touched, the special memories Kaitlin will always hold close and most especially willingness of Greg to share such a treasure in his life trusting you and Jessie to continue the spirit of sharing from the heart, well the video interview, it’s like a great book you can’t put down, always want to reread and share with others because it defines all facets of love of one of God’s majestic creatures. Sort of like one of life’s best kept secrets that can happen when you open your heart to trust in people 🙂 Thank you for sharing.
