Our trip to Atlanta Georgia with the six horse hitch for Devyne Stephens who rode in the carriage with Akon to his Christmas party where MTV and Yung Joc multi Platinum hip hop artist walking behind the carriage did about an hour of shooting footage for a show on MTV.
Devyne Stephens is one of the most influential entertainment moguls that you have never heard of. He is the CEO of Upfront Megatainment, a company that extends itself into every area of entertainment. Not just a record label, it is an umbrella company for an array of other projects that Stephens has put together.
Few hours later we are down the road with another flat we are so close so we changed
tire and hoped we would get into Atlanta Georgia unhook and then go look for tires. They don't have trailer tires down town Atlanta so the tire place drove out of town to pick some up they were very friendly and willing to help.
On our way to Atlanta Georgia we stop at a Cracker Barrel to and notice flat tire on trailer so we unloaded horses changed the tire and went in to eat.
Changing flat tires will make you hungry and breakfast at Ihop was alright.
Coming into Atlanta Georgia was a little scary with its tall buildings and heavy traffic this would definitely be interesting. Its been a long trip and looking for the museum.
Ok here are at the Atlanta Historic Museum is where the event will be held and we are going to set up here and then drive to the Hotel to pick up Devyne Stevens, Akon and Yung Joc.
On our way to the St. Regis Hotel in Atlanta Georgia to pick up Devyne Stevens with our six white percheron horses. We were escorted by an Atlanta Georgia Motorcycle Patrol Officer.
We have arrived at the St. Regis Hotel
We fit right in with the lastest models of Ferrari's.
Before we picked up Devyne Stevens, and Akon we met with MTV down the street and we did a shoot with Yung Joc.
MTV setting up to do the shoot.
Here Jessie was willing to help with the shoot working with Yung Joc. Yung Joc not knowing anything about horses did not watch where he was walking, all part of the shoot.
I think it was Zeke the horse who left Yung Joc the present on the ground he has the look and grin on his face.
Later we are joined by Devyne Stevens and Akon who pulled up in the Rolls-Royce and the Ferrari and Young Joc has been assigned to follow the carriage in case the horses leave another present.

And it time for the entrance to the Christmas Party
Its been a good day and great experience. Devyne Stevens at his Christmas party donate $300,000.00 that evening to a children's hospital in Atlanta Georgia. Yung Joc was a very nice young man who we enjoyed working with. And the horses were very cooperative standing for an hour with bright lights and cameras during the shoot, we are very proud of our horses for working with us.
After we packed up and headed for home the excitement was not over. The dent in the bumper was caused by a lazy boy chair that was lost on the highway in the middle of the night, like a deer in the head lights it froze. Sorry to say the lazy boy did not stand a chance against the ford f-350 at 65 miles an hour our hearts go out to the owner hope he was not attached to the chair.
No animals were injured or sickened during the shooting of this event only the lazy boy.
We finally find the location to park feed and water horses and begin to get ready for the event. Horses will need to be braided, brushed, tail bows and harnessed. Carriage also will need to be cleaned.
More photos to come.
