Eliz, will this be your first time? If so, it's like Disney World for horse people.
I remember the Nationals during the years when Arabians were being sold for over a million dollars apiece. One whole arena was set aside just for 'stuff'.
It's scaled back some now, but still danged impressive. I loved watching the performance classes more than the halter, although everyone
watched Stallion Halter the final night. It's almost a sin not to!
I recommend if you're on a budget, leaving your money and credit cards somewhere you can't easily get to them.
