I have been goin since I was 2. 13 years ago my mom and stepdad and I began going. Now, there are two more little kids, a bigger alcohol intake, and only 3 less horses. This will be the first year we have purposely not stayed all 9 days. (with the exception of last year, [horse/alcohol incident]) I have so much fun. I have very few friends there. But not having enough horses for the whole family leaves me stuck riding around camp. This year I will own my own one day band. I'm so upset about it. It is such a fun place for kids and adults. I bring my dog and she gets to walk with me when I go around the camp. It is very big. This year, I know alot of people who are skipping out because of the raised prices. But I agree with the raise. Anything else.....? Well, there is a snowcone place (we kids love), usually 3 dances with good music and a big dancefloor, cowboychurch, tack set-ups everywhere, some stands with food up by arena, a tack sale, a show, an auction, a trail competition and arena "obsticle" competition for all ages. It is so much fun! I recomond it for anybody who doesnt mind rain on at least one day of camping, hot weather, and dusty roads. Oh yea, and LOTS of horses.
