Washington Horse Fair and Expo, This is the second year this company has had this event. Four years ago it was put on by The Mane Event, the same company that puts on a big expo up in Alberta. For some reason they did it for two years, then stopped. We had a year with no expo, then this company started one.
For all intensive purposes, it was almost the same as last year, except they didnt charge $8 bucks extra to see the entertainment show at 8PM. Oh and they didnt invite Mark Bolender back this year?? I have made a few comments on the expos FB that I was really disappointed that he wasnt back, he could have really spiced up the show, with what he does, although, he is probably fairly expensive to have come. I dont know how that works, because they would get all kinds of business from the show too. Craig Cameron, Barb Apple, Steve Rother, Kyle Kellmer, and Allison Trimble, were some of the clinitions.
Anyway, our first stop was talking with the Back country Horsemen of Washington. They are a wonderful group that maintains trails and does a lot for the trail horse community in this area. We have a friend that is very active in BCH, and we visited with him for awhile.
I really dont care for the back tack area. I cant imagine, if you had a horse go down having to throw all your tack out to get the dang thing open and get to the horse! Not for me! We all know shit happens sometimes when you haul horses.
