    The non showing aspects of a show

    So around my area about half the fun comes from when your not riding/showing. Everybody knows eachother and alot goes on. At any show that lasts the whole weekend, or the big shows that last almost a full week where everyone is camping out; theres parties after the show is over, games, ect.

    So I'm just wondering if other show crowds get into this? Any stories?

    Im not sure about shows, but I know the trail rides go this way. Heck, half of the trail ride is spent sitting around hootin and a hollering and, those of legal age, drinking. That is half the fun of the day long trail rides is the end of the ride.

    Here theres not much that goes in after a show, but during the show at night (if its an ag show) theres rides and stuff, and if its not an ag show (breed show for example) alot of people just sit around campfires talking and such.

    Not that I want to drink...and I never have and don't intend to until I turn 21. My instructor is a retired cop and another person that sometimes goes on the trail rides is a cop (so I would be arrested for it). Last time I got offered a drink by a lady I had just met (she didn't know I was 17), and my instructor said something to the effect of "wait a minute" while I explained to her I was the DR.

    She asked what that was and I told her I was the designated rider, so if somebody was unable to properly "drive" their horse, I was to pony them back to the trailer. She just laughed and handed me a bottled water.

    Yeah, usually after the shows (the lower shows, not the higher ones) everyone sits around drinking and joking and stuff.. the lower shows are more fun then the higher level ones.

    I do sorta the same thing. My banr does eventing and usually at least 10 of us go to the events. So we always have a campfire, the adults have loads of beer and wine us teenagers just chill with our pop. One of the mom's brings her guitar and we trade stories about this that and everything. Its a lot of fun. The adults who show are usually hung over the next day {at least our coach is} so its funny watching her ride and trying to coach us. Its all fun though.

    I belong to a local hunt club and we always do a stirrup cup in the morning before we let the hounds out. Since it is a drag hunt, whenever a strip of scent has ended everyone normally has something out of their flask. No one gets drunk since we only get a chance for a few sips.
