Hoosier Horse Fair Information

"Come visit me, I'm awesome!"
Since a couple of you locals have said in the comments that you will be attending the Hoosier Horse Fair this year, I wanted to let you know when and where Connor and I will be this week.  Our event, the Breed Demo, starts at 2pm in the Blue Ribbon Pavilion each day.  When we're not performing, I'll be hanging around his stall in the Champions Pavilion for the most part.

Also, all the Breed Demo and Stallion Demo participants have a chance to win a brand new trailer in a crowd vote for their favorite horse (Saturday and Sunday only), so please make sure to take a minute and vote for the Welsh breed while you're there! (all 5 of us count as one entry, I think)  Our Heartland Welsh Club would likely use it as a fundraiser for the club if we won.

Everyone seems to think that he's going to be a spook festival at the Horse Fair, but I am not so sure.  I do think that if someone moves in the bleachers as we ride by he'll spook, but overall, he's unusually comfortable in crazy show situations in which everything in the environment is moving.  He really doesn't like a quiet environment in which one thing moves at a time and steals his attention.  A horse that likes chaos...hmm...

Looking forward to seeing some of you this week!  Go Welsh!


  1. Have a great time at the fair! I bet he'll be great. Mine is the same way - if there is a lot going on or its a new environment she won't find anything to spook at, but if one thing is different in our otherwise normal daily routine....:)

  2. Have fun. I would try to venture up if I wasn't competing this weekend.

  3. Happy Pony, that is interesting. Maybe it's a Cob thing. They are supposed to be especially tuned to people, I wonder if that has something to do with it.

    Hillary, no problem and kick butt this weekend! I am hoping our first "away" show will be in KY, so hopefully we can meet up later this summer.

  4. I don't know how you get those great photos of Connor! Love the faces :)

    Thanks for letting us know how to find you this weekend - Connor will be awesome!

  5. Step 1: Own a restless horse that can't stand still with an oral fixation.

    Step 2: DSLR on burst mode.

    No kidding, that's how I got that entire series of like 60 photos last summer, and about 30 of them turned out hysterically funny.

  6. Sounds like a lot of fun! Those pictures are adorable of him too.

  7. I'M GOING!!! I will be taking a picture with him, because he's so cute!!
