Show season is wayyyy done here in western WA and I was reminiscing this morning about all the shows this past year. My favorites---->
Morgan Horse Shows have Happy Hour. They stop the show by 4, cocktail it up for about two hours then everyone gets back on and goes in for the evening session around 6. One friend stopped by the one in Monroe twice and arrived at Happy Hour each time. She was having fun and loved it but is now convinced that Morgan folks just go to party, they don't actually get on their horses and show LOL!!
The bad groom Xavier at the H/J shows. I would usually start hearing someone yell Xaviers name starting around 4:30 or 5:00 am. Seems Xavier does not like to get up early. He usually responds with some fresh Spanish after a few wake up calls (!!$@#$^# @%*&%@%!! *&^*&!@@ @%$ !!$! in Espanol). Xaviers name is always being called, by the head groom, the trainers, you name it. That guy was just mad at life all season. I got to meet him at the Emerald Classic, I had to leave a message for his boss and he took the note, glared at me and called me "puta blanca". I am starting to think from him it is a term of endearment LOL!! He got along really well with the small ponies though.
At the Arab shows, my favorite hot! hot! hot! male saddleseat rider who cruises around on a segway cheering and encouraging everyone on. I miss that guy There are days I could use a festive drive by on a segway.
Anyone else have fun show memories?
