So we get to this show and I had known it was going to be mainly saddle seat which is not my favorite discipline, but I thought I could get some nice photos to use as reference.
Well, when we pulled in I saw two horses. That was a good sign, at least something was going on. We get out of the car and the first of the evening's classes was about to start. There were two horses in the class! Yikes, not much of a show. Luckily my family found a slide and swing to play on while I tried to take a few photos because it was God aweful boring. I have never seen a show with such a small turnout. The next class was one for Friesians and lucky for me, two showed up. I was able to take a few shots of one in particular but the lady did not seem too impressed with me. I found her website tonight and I can see she probably thinks very highly of herself. She mentions several times about her friendship with Carson Kressley. How dare some peasant want to photograph her magnificent steed.
Then I watched another saddlebred class and that was it for me. I don't know why anyone would want to ride an animal like that. It is a shame what they do to them. They look so unnatural and they really try to work the poor things up by hissing at them during the class. They could barely stop the things when asked and it just didn't look like any fun at all. So, here are a few of my photos. Wish I could have taken more but there was only about 8 horses there!
