On Saturday, I had the great pleasure of attending the Rocky Mountain Horse Expo with a group of hobby friends. From left to right, that's Teresa, Jennifer, Julie, Teresa, Fabian and Chance.We met at the Hall of Education and spent a couple hours wandering through the trade show,
and visiting some of our favorite exhibits.
As usual, I was on the lookout for interesting tack. I found a nifty gaucho saddle at the Ironless Horse booth...
and the Teresa's found a found a fluffy gaucho saddle cover!The US Forest Service was there with their big Pancho mule...
and a nice selection of packing tack. I wish I'd have seen this single rigged sawbuck before I started on Kim's Pebbles scale pack set...
but these pannier photos may still come in handy!
With so many great things on display, we felt like kids in a candy store.
"Look, it's Cisco!"
Then we found the sidesaddle booth...
and suddenly, things got serious!
I don't want to give too much away, but it's possible that someone bought himself a new saddle.
After spending a couple hours at the trade show...I was ready to see some horses.
So we headed over to the Events Center and walked the barn aisles...
and stood by the warm-up ring.
Horse Expos always remind me of model horse shows.
Where else can you see...
so many different types of horses in one place?
While we were there, we watched a game of collegiate indoor polo.My alma mater, Colorado State University was victorious. Go Rams!
After polo came polocrosse.
And then, finally, it was time to go home. This was such a fun day--I can't wait to do it again next year!
