    Default How Many of You Horse People Know What a "Kile" Is?

    I didn't. But now I do. Check out the sequence of photos after the first one.

    Impressive! I have learned something new.

    I must admit that my first thought was, "Good grief, that's a lot of big grey horses to groom."

    Kile means tickle or wedge in Norwegian

    The hitch and turn out of the horses is very impressive. Too bad the drivers weren't also turned out a little better.

    I have never seen that type of hitch before, pretty fancy!

    Cool hitch....but KILE stands for Keystone International Livestock Exhibition. So do I win a prize for knowing?

    I was pretty sure that KILE was the horse show. Thank you Unforgettable for knowing what the initials stand for.

    You would really want to make sure those horses were trained very well. And I agree, that one couple could have dressed up a bit.

    Maybe after groom and harnessing that many grey horses they didn't have the energy to fix themselves up.

    Wow.
    Just WOW.

    He doesn't look half bad, she OTOH, could at least have picked a T-shirt that hid the fat folds

    FWIW: when I watch the driving classes at our County Fair, most of the presenters look great - men in suits, white shirts, ties, boots shined, Stetson just so. Women in long skirts, nice blouses, Great Hats!
    Then the occasional WTFWTT sequined evening gown/prom dress get up.

    The caption said "performing *at* KILE" which perhaps the OP read as "performing *a* KILE."
