This ballsy woman tested a hotel's pet policy to the limits!

Ever wondered what a hotel’s pet policy will and won’t cover?  So did this ballsy lady who decided to really test one hotel’s pet policy to the limit after the receptionist said it didn't discriminate.

The owner of Harmony Horsemanship (founded 2015) Lindsey Partridge, told ABC News she was driving down from Pontypool, Ontario, to Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky, when she decided to check into her hotel.

She was there to compete in Retired Racehorse Project’s Thoroughbred Makeover, a competition that witnesses hundreds of retired racehorses compete in categories such as field hunter, polo, ranch work and trail, among others.

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

She spotted a dog in the lobby of the Supreme 8 in Georgetown, Kentucky. After a quip to the receptionist about pets being allowed in the hotel and Lindsey having several horses outside, the receptionist fired back with "'Oh, I don't care. Sure, bring them in!'"

In a comic moment, Partridge took several funny photos that got a huge response 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."

The owners of Supreme 8 confirmed the incident to ABC News.

Clarifying their pet policy, the owners stated: "We did not know she was going to bring the horse into the facility. We are pet-friendly and it is 25 pounds and under. We had no knowledge of it being in the room."

What a great story and well done to the hotel owners for such a great sense of humour!
