Midwest Horse Fair!
Anyone on here going? And if so, what do you like to see? Is anyone participating in any or the clinics or demos?

Last year was my first year going and I loved it! My mom's friends sells stuff there so we would get there early. My favorite part was getting there before any of the other people and sitting in the John Deere Coliseum and watching them warm the horses up. It was so cool. I liked watching Steffan Peters and going to the 4-H Tack Sale. The Nutrena Jumping Show was amazing on Saturday night!

I go every year :). I'll probably be volunteering again this year- that's always fun. Last year I was told to watch the doors of the grand prix barn, so that was pretty cool to see all those gorgeous horses up close! The Steffen Peters and Nick Karazissis clinics were really interesting last year, so I'll probably go again to watch this year. The tack sale is always great and it's so much easier to buy things used when they're half the price and just as good as new :).

I sm defiantly going this year. I have gone the past 4 years and never have enough time to see everything after the three days it seems.
I have tons of stuff for the tack sale this year including a saddle so can't wait to clean barn! Then go and buy some other stuff that I may or may not need haha.
I enjoy all the clinics as well. I always learn a lot. I was going to be in a clinic this year with my green mare but I decided that next year would be better when she was more trained.
