Now where can I find the green dress in the first picture?

That was great! I think every horse show Mom will enjoy that.

Happy Mothers Day!

Here's to the Horse Show Moms
To whom we owe the most respect and without whom our lives would not be the same :)

Cooky McClung is so talented!

I'm sorry to say I rarely see columns by her these days. Does anyone know if her stuff appears anywhere on a regular basis?

OMG hilarious. And SO true!! :lol:

And I thought being a groom was alot of work. :lol:

Oh that was priceless! This is so getting printed and framed. Now I know what I am supposed to do as a show mom.

She is strictly forbidden to carry a whip or curb chain, for when tempers flare her aim can be deadly. A recent addition, cotton ropes were also banned after a Wellington, Florida judge was discovered tied to the announcer’s stand and spray-painted with hoof dressing.

The pretzels and water I was eating/drinking just wound up all over the keyboard and monitor.

Loved it. Especially the "high five" pic. Can't wait to torture my daughter and melt the judges sunglasses with my stare. She turns three in July. Let the pony shopping begin.

Thanks for sharing that. As I am a "horse show mom" myself, and came up throught the ranks of Lead Line classes, I can relate and laugh.

I was tearing up and laughing the whole time I read it. My birthday is always Devon week, I have spent many many m a n y
birthdays there, with of course, my horse show mom.

Absolutely loved it !

How I miss those days :sadsmile:

This weekend will be the first Mother's Day that was not spent at a horse show in about 5 years. I didn't even realize it was Mother's Day because we always go to a show then!! I've never worn a big floppy hat but I am known to carry both a camera and sony camcorder!

This really cracked me up! A great article!

I happen to have that green dress in the first picture. It is from J. McLaughlin:


It's from last year, so I'm not sure if it's still available. But, if you like it, I bet you'll like their other stuff too. They actually usually have a booth at Devon too(under one of the East grandstands).

Happy shopping!
