    Default Upperville

    My DH and I will be there Saturday, June 6, spectating. We'll be at the Cleveland Bay classes that afternoon. I plan to wander around the vendors' stands, too, to find all the items I didn't know I needed until I see them.

    We're staying Fri and Sat at the Lost Dog Inn in Berryville.

    Just wondering who else will be there, as participants and/or spectators.

    I will be wearing my Upperville Hat (straw, or a reasonable facsimile). It is noteworthy as my draftX tried to eat it a couple weeks ago and has a ragged brim behind my left ear as a result.

    I will be there showing my horse in the A/A hunters as long as it is not too muddy...My horse and I braved the mud and lightening last year streaking down in front of us when we were jumping a line. I plan on not doing that again...haha...lets hope for great weather!

    We were going to go last year to meet friends and tailgate, but
    I crashed into a boulder by the side of our driveway and did 1k of damage to my car- Well I WAS checking my mare out who had a mild choke episode the night before....
    Thankfully I didn't have OnStar as it would be a bit embarassing to explain my "accident".

    Carol, are we all tailgating? I"m coming from the Wilson reunion, so not sure what I can bring that would stay. I am very excited to come. Now maybe I need to find someone to watch my kiddos, so I can come alone. Oh and feed the horses!

    Hi Maria,
    I don't think there is a formal tailgating plan, but hopefully we will all gather around for the CB classes. I hope to bring some pics of my herd so you can see Dutch, Contention's new BFF. She even lets him eat out of her grain tub!
    I gather Taylor isn't showing in the short stirrup?
    Sounds like you'll be having a busy weekend! Will be good to see you again.

    Hey 3Dogs - Did you see the trophy handed out last year? I think it was for the Cleveland Bays.

    It was a miniature tack box made out of reclaimed oak with brass fittings.

    Was that for you guys?

    I should be there this year - just spectating.

    Hey J Swan,

    I wasn't there last year due to an unfortunate car/boulder disagreement at the end of our driveway.

    I'm not sure what the trophy was, but it sounds unique and impressive.

    I'll be there with DH, who has a beard and looks like Santa Claus. He walks with a cane.

    Come by and say hi!

    I have at least one client horse doing the jumpers earlier in the week, but will be there Sat and Sunday.

    Last year my husband was the Cleaveland Bay Grand Champion with a fabulous gelding anotehr COTHer bred. They'll be there this year too!

    Hope to see and meet some new people!

    Ishi, what is the name of your DH's horse and what is the breeding? Love my Cleveland Bays!

    We can all wear a red rose and carry a sled around (y'know Citizen Kane)?
    Seriously , anyone have an idea where to meet?

    3dogfarm, you mentioned that you would be watching the CB classes in the afternoon. In case you haven't seen it, the schedule for Saturday was changed this year, and the CB classes are first thing in the morning. Just an FYI.

    Will be there on Wed to practice the three S's: shop/spectate/socialize.

    Wow-thanks SS Rider! We would have had a casual breakfast in Berryville and then sauntered over to the show grounds! (half hour away, I believe)

    Definitely the three SSS-es Anyplace Farm! Except the cat I rescued last week is going to set us back lots o' $$$ for all the repair work the vet did so my wallet is going to be lighter than expected. It's OK, kitty is worth it.
    Then we have three dogs and probably kitty to board, dogs need shots, horses need farrier, oh, *hail*, I'll just sign my paycheck over to the vet....
