Equestrian Show

Did you know that just ten minutes from our house is a location that does Equestrian Shows? I have grown up my whole life here and had not a clue. Since we moved here 3 1/2 years ago I have seen signs advertising the shows, but never seemed to make it out. We finally put it on our calendars and remembered to go this time.
Although we didn't really know what was going on, it was cool to watch how high these horses could jump. I think the hardest part for the kids was that you had to be quiet while there was a rider on the course.

After we got tired of watching (which in reality was only maybe 10 minutes), we walked down behind the arena (if that is what you call it) and asked a lady if she wouldn't mind telling us about her horse. We spent about a half an hour with her and the kids couldn't keep their hand off of the horse. It was a neat experience for us city folk.
