    Lightbulb Royal Winter Fair

    Do any americans drive down to the show, especially now Syracuse is no longer?

    Any Canadians planning on attending?

    Which Royal are you speaking of?
    There is the national Canadian show in Toronto starting early November, in which case Americans would be driving UP to the show, and that yes, many Canadians will be attending.

    I'm going for sure. Taking Two ponies to show in the half welsh classes. But I'll be going to watch a few days also.

    It is an annual rite of passage for anyone with an interest in agriculture, farming and equines.

    We're going! First year in a long time that one of our own isn't showing though.

    Kelly has some braiding slots left if anyone is looking for a braider

    I might go to watch some. It's such a fun show. Especially if you don't have to run up and down that ramp!

    I'm going down (being in Canada, and all) and am very excited! Just watching this year, hoping to qualify for the Hunter Derby Finals next year! (pipe dreams...)

    I went last year and will be going again this year as Blazing Colours Farm.

    Here is a link to some of what we did last November. http://www.blazingcoloursfarm.com/royalspirit.html

    We do 3-4 demonstrations a day in the Spirit of the Horse ring. It is in an educational format to teach people about colour genetics in horses. We take a few different horses to use in the demo's and it is ALWAYS a lot of fun. I can't wait, only another 3 weeks left...

    There is so much so see and do there. The big jumper classes are always a blast to watch and riders come from all over the world

    My daughter works for a tack shop and will be putting in long hours at the Royal!! IF she gets a day off and wants to go and actually see something I will go with her! I just love the Royal, but it has changed and is not what it used to be.
    Lots of great food though.. and I love seeing the big hitches! No tickets for shows this year, but I will probably get the streaming subscription again and watch it from home!

    We met with Faiths Cremello last year and had fun at the Spirit of the Horse (and donkeys)...
