1 Day at the AQHA World Show

This morning we headed up to Oklahoma City so see the AQHA World show.

We knew a girl whose horse was competing in the senior driving class.  On the way up we got to see some pretty nice barns and places, and we saw Carol Rose's place, still makes me kinda sad that its for sale though.  And we went through Moore where Toby Kieth is from.  Sure and interesting Drive, I am glad we went even if it was almost 4 hours.  We got there early enough that we saw the Junior hunter under Saddle finals

and the Aged halter Mares...boy that was boring....so long.  They lined them up under all 4 judges before they finally placed them in the class.  I though it was never gonna end, but there was lots of people cheering so I guess someone liked it.

Then the class we came for :)  It was cool and of course I like driving anyways (even if its with bigger ponies) it was cool and her horse got 3rd so she got a trophy and a picture and a buckle and a coat.  Pretty fun! And then she made us get in her picture, not sure I wanted to be in it but she was so excited we did.

We also went to the trade fair, was pretty small I was disappointing but that's OK we got a better one this week :)  The amount of showy stuff, stalls and trophys and stuff around the barns is just crazy too!  But kinda fun to just be there.  And in the one barn was a hawk flying around was kinda unexpected.

Saw this cool log carving, that's one big log and to carve like that was just amazing!

And the waterfall outside celebrating their centennial in 2007, wish it was nicer out there was lots to see.

Got chilly and windy out and was almost freezing by the time we left, was kinda rainy and dark the whole way back but much warmer down here still.  Specially when I hear at home how cold it was.

Sounds like a good time, we've always wanted to go. Surprised the trade show part wasn't better, but what a cool carving you found!

What a nice trip. Would love to see some of the world show and it's been a very long time since I've been to congress too.

Sounds like fun, I'd love to get a chance to visit the world show one day. Make sure you bring lots of warm clothes when you head out here - it is freeeeakin cold!

When I judged at the Congress, I was awestruck over the trade show. Then we went and judged at the World and I was like, 'This is it?'...So disappointing.

Very nice that you guys drove all the way up there to see your friend.
