I’m getting ready for a journey to another horse show. This time just to watch. I’m so lucky that Dean deals well with my obsessions; he hasn’t really complained once about me being out of town so much this summer (of course, I’m bribing him with a trip to Disney).
I am looking forward to attending my first state fair, as well. Hopefully I’ll find some entertainment value in it, since I have a feeling I’ll be spending a lot of time there, since I won’t have a car. I really hope that the hotel is within walking distance, as their website proclaims. Otherwise, I’m pretty much screwed since the rest of the barn people aren’t arriving until Friday afternoon, and they are staying somewhere else. I really want to watch the late night training sessions, but I don’t know yet how practical that is going to be.
M called the lady that I bought Blondie from, and told her that Laurie and I are attending the horse show. Laurie bought her pony from her. She invited us to come to their stabling area and meet them! I was excited about this when M told me, and after watching the live video feed from the show last night, now I’m really looking forward to it. They had three beautiful First Night Out yearlings in the yearling class, and they finished 1, 3 & 5. I liked Bingo Night the best (she finished 3rd), and hope I can see her in person on Friday.
I’ll update as time permits. Without a car to get back and forth to the hotel, I might only be able to post in the mornings, though. We are supposed to go to the Louisville Zoo, and maybe squeeze a trip to Churchhill Downs. Tomorrow there are a ton of classes during the day that I want to see at the horse show, so finding the time to do everything that I want is going to be tough.
