Last Friday I tagged along with Tammy to Sacramento to the Horse Expo.
WOW !!! What an event, everything you can think of for Western or
English riders, or for those who just enjoy horses.
A little girls dream come to life.
We sat in on a demonstration of "Colt Starting" by Chris Cox.
He had a horse with a lot of bad habits, including throwing itself over
backward. By the end of the class, he had it saddle and stepping up on her.
Bernie Traurig member of the USA Equestrian team, was the second
class we watched. He demonstrated the different positions for jumping.
There were plenty of venders to sell, tack for your horse or tack for you.
with or without "Bling" Lots of bling, it became a joke.
"Why work your horse in the arena, when you can work your horse on the corner"
There was everything to put in your horse, on your horse or put your horse in.
Feed, barns, saddle makers, book writers, artist and stuff
Tammy had to explain to me.
"Man !!!.....I'm I .......Old School"
This was cool! Grow your own feed in a box.
Simple version.....put barley seed in one end and in six days,
it comes out the other side as sprouts for your horse.
And of course horses, every size, shape, color and breed.
It was a great day and I had fun. Saw a lot of nice things and horses.
"Thank You Tammy"
