    Thank you - I very much appreciate it! The only excuse I have is that I must be nuts. I don't even care so much about the money, but I do care about the opportunity to get my foot in the door. It's the first step for me in trying to start my own business, so if I don't do it, I'll probably kick myself later. Believe me, it is rare for me to put something horse related on the backburner!

    Just be sure to wear the ballroom shoe on your head and hang the hoofpick from its heel!!!

    Ah... wish I could be there and maybe meet some fellow COTHers but I'm leaving for FL Saturday.

    If anyone goes by the ERRI booth (I think they're going to be there) please tell them that Travis, who is one of their 'graduates' was an angel at our first dressage show last weekend. He was one of Debbie's favorites.

    Default RED BACK BOOTS?

    Does anyone know if the Australian guy is there selling Red Back Boots???
    Oh my god - she's gone and got the eventing bug! I will send you some antibiotics! Take the entire bottle and do two hunter shows and it will pass!

    so I went today. Only 2 buildings, not 3 like years past. It was $10 bucks a head to get in, which seemed higher too. Walked out without a single thing bought. Stopped at Dover though and got my fix. BTW, Dover is having a heck of a sale on some saddles through the 19th.

    Sparky, there was an Aussie there. I remember he was selling stock saddles, not sure what else he might have had. All the vendors are in the Equiery if you can get your hands on one.
    Experience is what you get, when you didn't get what you wanted.

    I was there on Friday...kind've disappointing, only 2 buildings, more cramped and less lectures than normal.

    Of course, it was enjoyable, didn't run into too many people I know and bought a neat mirror with a mosaic around it of hunt whip/hound/fox and snaffle bit.

    Sure was a lot of crap for sale and poor quality tack.

    Bonus points if anyone can think of his vendor name. I was thinking of getting another pair of his boots but won't be able to make it today. Maybe I can find them online.

    I went today and that was my impression. Very sad. I was hoping to pick up a couple items, but there was really nothing that interested me. I'm not sure if vendors didn't come because they didn't expect to make sales or what, but picking were very slim.

    Attendance seemed good (at least judging by how far away I had to park).

    I thought attendance was down from past years (at least around my end of the Expo). Attendance at our seminars was definitely down and I thought it just didn't look as crowded in the Cow Palace, though there were some brief moments of crowdedness. I talked to one of the Amish barn-builders who said that usually by the end of Saturday, they sell a half-dozen sheds, but this year by 1:00-ish on Saturday...nada. Sad - hopefully the PA one will be better.

    Talking

    I was there on Friday- pretty dissapointing- not much there and what was there was the same old, same old as the previous years.
    I think the highlight was watching the AWR stallion Rubiyat and some cowboy sitting behind me dressed in his finest says to two young girls sitting next to him " That guy is awfully lucky to be riding an Oldenburg! You know, they are almost extinct" .... I almost fell off the bleachers laughing
