oh cool. :) Yup, this is the first weekend. We just go with the FFA the 17th, 18th, & 19th because it's the most amount of days without missing school, since we have the 19th off. Then the next weekend me and my mom are just going up. They do the english h/j and such the first weekend, then the next is all of the draft stuff; being that my mom has a draft horse she likes going to watch the draft events.
It actually depends on where you park for the most part.. We always park in the parking area by the stock yards.. which we actually like, because then you get to walk the ramp over the stock yards, so you get to see it all. Parking there isn't really bad.. Or atleast when we've gone.
No, I'm more in to just pleasure riding.. We have a lot of gorgeous trails up here. But I did 4H as a kid, and I'm currently in FFA and am one of the 4 kids on on our horse judging team. So that's my competition. lol.
I'm actually going to the stock show the 17th, 18th, and 19th, and then also on the 24th and 25th. :) Are you going up?
