Hoosier Horse Fair, Part I

This weekend, I had the opportunity to ride Connor's sire, *Tuscani Dundee, each day of the Hoosier Horse Fair.  For those of you not from the great state of Indiana, the HHF is designed to be a celebration of all things horse, but ends up being a Western festival with a couple of token English saddles.  What can I say?  It's representative of the state, for the most part.   I always have a good time, either because of the people I'm with or my own involvement in it, or both.

This year, I was riding Dundee in the Parade of Stallions, which gives each stallion on Stallion Row two minutes in the main arena to strut their stuff in front of the crowd.  I thought I'd put the stallions and my own ride in the same post, but I think the ride will have to wait.  The stallions ran the gamut:

From this lovely fellow...

To "OH MY GOSH HIS CANON BONES ARE THE SIZE OF MY FOREARM"

To this lovely foundation Quarter Horse

To this Western Pleasure horse's bridleless soccer demo, which the horse clearly enjoyed.

To this Vanner,, who bucked into the canter on Day 1, and ran into the wall on Day 3...


To "WHY IS THE ONE ON THE LEFT A STALLION?!"

To this 19hh giant that actually got loose this morning...
























More coming...

  1. Enjoyed the pics! This is the first time we have not attended the IN expo in about 6 years. We decided to travel to Columbus, OH for Equine Affair, mainly because of the over abundance of Western wear in IN. Still alot of bling in OH, but we found everything we are looking for and EA if huge!
