On Friday my family and I went to downtown Denver for the three day annual Rocky Mountain Horse expo. It was the first time I had ever been to it, and I found it enjoyable. (I mean, which horse lover doesn't find it enjoyable)? I met a lot of friendly horse people, and spent some time talking to a miniature horse breeder. I am sorry for some of the blurry pictures, the good camera is broken so I had to bring my small one. But I have to say, it is hard to capture non-blurry action pictures with any camera!
It was raining when we got to our destination.
We saw many vendors and went down to the stalls to see horses.
......But others did.
I came across this horse who was for sale..
The horse above had a friend of his that was also for sale.
Isn't he pretty?
Then we went to the warm up area and watched a magnificent horse and rider. They had perfect sliding stops, turns, canters from a walk, and just overall grace.
I happened to come across the horse in his stall later after he had been worked.
Then I went and saw some Icelandic's....
..and miniature horses...my Mini's are 32" and 33" inches tall, and they were 22" and 25" inches tall! I have never seen a horse ear so small.
The Rocky mountain horse expo was a lot of fun. I can't wait to go back next year!
HORSE IF THE WEEK!
P.S. Thanks so much for 1000 views!
