Hi! I was actually searching for stuff about QuarterFest and your post popped up. Yay for you, because you lead me to The Horse Forum. :)
Anyway, I'm trying to figure out a way to fund a trip down there. Haha AQHA has a couple of contests (that I know of, I am hoping to find more) for free trips. One is through their blog America's Horse Daily and it ends Friday. Another is a video contest..I think this is the right link...I'm not much of a videographer
I thought about that, too! I heard that they would be having some kind of Kentucky Derby celebration, but I don't think I've seen anything officially mentioned on the schedule.... tough call, especially for being a Kentuckian!
