|A sweet little red roan heads into one of the arenas.|
|I loved watching the progression in size of jumps and the abilities of the riders.|
|There were four arenas, each with different styles of obstacles.|
|I got tickled listening to the coaches providing pointers to their young charges.|
I wondered if it influenced the judge in the hunter or equitation divisions.
|I would catch myself "riding" with the horse in the arena.|
I took almost every jump with every rider I watched.
|When I showed I almost always did hunters and equitation. I found them|
boring to watch. Even though the jumper division didn't go higher than 3' 3"
it was much more exciting.
|This guy enjoyed some Gatorade after his jumping round.|
|I enjoy wandering through the stabling areas to see the preparation and care|
after competing. There were quite a few little obstacles for kids to play with.
|Ribbons are proudly displayed on stable banners.|
|This sweet gray looks totally unphased by the hubbub around him.|
I think he is wishing he was out running free in a pasture.
