Don't forget to click the pic..... Unless you've already forgotten, in which case don't worry about it.
Getting pictures like this is dangerous but fortunately I got out of the way before the horse ran over me, but it wasn't easy, he chased me around the arena for quite a while.
Last day of the RV show today and it will be good to see it go. It's of no benefit to me other than a few pictures, but it brings noise, a bunch of people, and maybe even the plague as far as I know. But the biggest problem in my opinion is it's put on by one humongous RV dealership named La Mesa RV, so it's kind of the same thing at every show, and it's mostly just the same fifth wheels and the same class "A's" with a few class "C's" and Vans thrown in. But there basically all the same couple of brands so there's nothing unique, futuristic, or even interesting, it's all cookie-cutter RVs which of course is what sells so I don't blame the dealership.
They appear to be selling a lot of them since I can look out my kitchen window and see the area where they put the ones that have sold, I would say just like last time their selling 20 or 30 a day, and just guessing it looks like mostly class A's and class "Cs".
I think the kind of RV shows where different manufacturers display their RVs would be a lot more interesting even to someone like me who has no desire to buy another RV.
Fly Fluffy! fly!..... Show those pink chrysanthemums who's boss.
They say this is an excellent exercise for the horse, except of course a horse can run for hours and this event takes about two minutes. The average horse can easily jump over a 4 or 5-foot fence if they want to so stepping over a 2-foot tall flower garden doesn't seem very strenuous. And they don't even run around the course their actually loping most of the time. I think the most exercise the horse and rider actually get is trying to put the horse in the trailer when he doesn't want to go.
The popularity of Hunter Jumper events rivals that of Football and packs the stands with fervent fanatic fans in whatever venue it's held.
The whole idea of having a horse like this was so a hunter could chase down the game no matter where the game ran. And the horse could jump over fences, leap wide rivers, and rappel down cliffs to catch whatever it was chasing. How that ended up being a horse stepping over a flower bed I'll never understand.
So how do they get these horses to jump over things when they don't want to?..... The women wear Spurs... Big sharp Spurs.... And they know how to use em.... I was going to add a joke here about their husbands but I decided it would be in bad taste.
