First Day of the Arabian Horse Show

Another event that I have enjoyed the last 3 years, is the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show. We have gotten a two for one ticket every year. It's the best 5$ you can spend! You park out a ways and then they pick you up in a golf cart and take you right to the entry way. I haven't owned a horse since I was in high school, but it is so fun to look at all the beautiful animals. Everyone is gracious, happy to explain things if you don't know.
We walk through luxury horse trailer/RV's. The salesmen are nice even though they know we are just gawkers. It's a completely different lifestyle but fun to look at once a year. And the horses....just amazingly beautiful. So many different classes. It's about 10 days long. We are going to go twice this year. I can't help myself but take a ton of photos. There is a lot here. Some not so good, but I wanted to include them. My camera battery died, so some are from my phone. There will probably be a second installment after my next trip.
