In the Story: Show Time!

At a horseshow, all the barns have banners up, not only to identify themselves, but they also use the backdrop to hang ribbons. When the Nethers go to their first horseshow, Kyle had a banner made to announce their new endeavor, Noble Heights, named after his mother's champion horse.

There's a lot of excitement in the air when arriving for a horseshow. It's a fury of unpacking, setting up, unloading horses. Each stall has to have wood shavings, water buckets hung and filled, hay nets, and of course...horses!

Corey is always so nosey when I go into Zorro's stall. 

In the Story: Going to a Horseshow!

I was a late comer to the world of horses, but no matter when you join this prestigious club, you'll love it. 

There is nothing like getting ready for the horseshow. It is constant motion from packing up, to loading, to unloading. I found it an amazing process. It is two, three, sometimes more days of non stop action. 

All the riders have special trunks, usually uniform with the barn they represent. We had large wooden trucks specially designed for our barn. But boy are they heavy. Yet one by one they get loaded and make the trip. 

And so it begins...
