The Mane Event 2014

The Mane Event at the Horse Expo was fun as usual.  We didn't have to witness the crazy cat lady presentation again, phew!  Below are some iPhone videos I took.  Not the best quality but it shows some of the diverse equine entertainment that was presented.  The Icelandic's usually just run around showing their gaits but they are so cute you just clap along.  They did some coordinated riding.  I think they are adorable!

Later there was a freestyle group.  I do love Haflingers and thought these guys did a great job.  I don't think I could do that with Dani, she'd run off to go roll in the sand!

The fiesta group was cool.  We had seen the little kid on his gorgeous Andalusian a few years ago.  He's grown but is still a tiny guy and still a great rider of these magnificent stallion.  They have a Friesian now who is gorgeous!

I enjoyed meeting my good friend Jessica and her hubby up there.  They've been in WY for several years and are finally able to move back home to MD.  I'll miss them.  It's been great reconnecting with her.  Jessica was my next door neighbor when I was in 4th grade.  We met while I was collecting rollie-pollies.  We played Breyer horses and took riding lessons at the same places.  She's my oldest horsie friend and I'll miss having her so nearby again.

Awesome, specially the Haflingers ;0 Hopefully we'll have just a good a time at Columbus Equine Affaire's Fantatsia next month.
