PA National Horse Show

Today kicks off the beginning of the Pennsylvania National Horse Show held at the Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, PA.  You can see the schedule here.  My Mom and I just might hop in the car and head up for Hunt Night on Monday night.  A couple of friends of mine are showing and we just clipped the one horse that are headed up.  Plus the Ladies Sidesaddle Undersaddle is that night as well. 

I want to one day be able to say I showed there.  That is my dream.  I have most of my stuff for sidesaddle but I am lacking the horse.  I know I have some friends that would love to see their hunter go around so maybe someone will loan me one to ride.  If my mare wasn't such a loud roarer she could do it, but we sound like a freight train coming 'round the bend.  I had once tried to get in Local day at Washington in the jumpers and in the warm up ring, I met a guy that used to train her when she was young.  He told me two things - she always hated her flat work and if you went and popped her over something she was much happier and she was always too loud for the hunter ring.  We did okay at the local shows but would of never put her in at a big show.  Plus I never had the money!

I got a little off track there.  If anyone is going to Hunt Night let me know and I will post some pictures when I get back. 

Have a great weekend!
