With six horses in tow, that's two trips of three each, we headed off to the Oregon Horse Center for their winter fun show. We're only 20 minutes away from the Horse Center, so it's an easy trip. Friday afternoon was horse and "stuff" transport. There is always lots of "stuff" when you go to a horse show. All the stuff to take care of the horses and all the stuff people need to show horses, like sparkling clean horse equipment, and new shirts.

Brittney has been with us over a year and a half, starting with working in the stable and now a leaser, who has done a great job developing her equestrian skills. Khira boards her mustang Salita with us and also rides the Paso Finos. She has been with us almost a year and has come a long way as a young horse woman and rider.

We had a great weekend, full of fun, a few frustrations, lots of learning and lots to be proud of. There's nothing like the horse and human bond. Proof of that in the Budweiser Beer Superbowl 13 commercial featuring the Budweiser Clydesdales. Not a dry eye in America as people watched the bonding of horse and trainer.
