We lucked out, arriving just in time for a driving clinic. How awesome is that! A mini, a pony & a Haflinger took part. Sorry no pix, it was a low light covered arena and nothing turned out.
Touring the horse barn next up, Sunday I knew isn't the best day to attend as many of the horses have gone or are preparing to head out.
We'd been to busy the other days with FIL's house.
I had a short list of things I wished to pick up, sadly Mini gear isn't something most vendors carry, so just a few items gotten. I did find something the Grandboys will absolutely love, I'll video them when Easter Bunny delivers it! Also some Chocolate horse head suckers, who'd have thought my Easter basket items would be so equine themed lol
One item I was very dissapointed not to find was a belt for this...
I mean come on, wouldn't you think some vendor, just one at such an enormous Equine event would have leather belts for buckles? As we sorted thru FIL's house Hubs discovered this treasure. Solid silver with blue enamel center. I absolutely love it! Anyone have any ideas where I might find an appropriate belt for it?
Another item Hubs set aside for me...
I noticed as I put it in a special place, a paper tucked in its neck. Imagine my surprise that this had apparently been a wedding gift in 1948!!! It's only blemish is a chip at the top of the neck. What a treasure!
Will always give me fond memories of Ivan.
