I don't have a rideable horse(Yet. I'm slowly bringing Bubba back into work at 17-18 yrs old after being pretty much a pasture puff for 10 years ) but I need to get into the habit of carrying around a knife with me. Especially with clumsy Henny who seems to get himself tied up in ropes all the time.

There on the tips of fair fresh flowers feedeth he; How joyous his neigh,
there in the midst of sacred pollen hidden, all hidden he; how joyous his neigh

Now cynical that is something to do.
A good horse should really give us all something to talk about. There will be a trade show and a little shopping . If we watch some jumping classes TBJ ccould give us all tips.
We can also tour the Sundance Square area afterward.
I do like the idea of a BBQ though then we could all relax and enjoy each others company.
Ladies and Worship Warrior I have to go and do my Friday at the VA Hospital and at the Veterans Hotline tonight. wont be back till late so get to talking and lets narrow this thing down. Shalom

As a response to the knife question, I carry 1 of 4 knives everywhere. Usually my 3" square edge, but other times my curved 2 1/2" inch, then I have 1 open blade that stays at the barn, and 1 open blade beside my bed :) You never know! Hahahaha :)

I'll let ya'll decide and then make my decision about whether or not to come based on where it is ... seeing as I won't be bringing horses (except for the 900 I'll be riding and the 1300 DH will be riding.. hehe)

I do! When I was growing up in S. California, my BF's father, made sure everyone had a pocket knife from the time they were about 7 yrs old. He said "Never know when your going to get tangled up in a grape vine"! lol Since then, there has always been a pocket knife in my purse or saddle bag. Even in high school. Though, back in the dark ages, we didn't have to worry about knives in school.

Anywho.... My first ride at the Grasslands, we decided to get off the well marked trail, and go on the deer trails. They have a bunch of vines with little thorns, and one place, Joe (my horse) and I were in the lead, was about to go between 2 treen down into a dry creek bed. Both of us missed the thin little vine tangled between, because we were looking down at the creek. His head went right inbetween 2 vines that were crisscrossed above and below his head, then ended up tangled up around his 2 front feet! He was so good, never moved a muscle. I was working on the vines above him, my GF's DH was working on the vines at his feet.... I COULDN'T FIND MY POCKET KNIFE! Got free, found another trail, reached in saddle bag to get my water..... picked up my knife SMH! lol
And it's a multi-tool, so not a small little knife! lol

I told my mom, "I'm 50 yrs old, finally get tangled in a grape vine, and can't find my ****ed knife!" lol

I know nothing about knives, but keep meaning to get one. Suggestions? Really, just something I can carry on the trail (not that Cash & I will be out for awhile!) for instances just like Nu's vines. In all my years with horses, I've never been in a situation that required a knife, so I'm probably due ;)

I have yet to look up Lake Ray, but I'll assume it's just fine. I'll admit the Appy show in Ft Worth is appealing, not just for being a horse show, but also considering there will be A/C...and I'm a wuss in the heat.
