The Horse Show

Today we went to the Horse Show.

We live in the equestrian center of the country. People come from far and wide for our winter equestrian events. We were fortunate today because we sold Girl Scout cookies at the Horse Show. Here is Rachel with Breanna.

The Palm Beach International Equestian Center is quite an impressive place. It's tucked away in the western corner of Palm Beach County. It's a whole other world in the equestrian part of town. The Equestrian Center is very pretty and very well maintained.

Rachel has been dying to get some pictures of horses, so today we were in luck! I was able to get some nice ones also. Look how regal these show horses are.

This jump scored high points.

The whole atmosphere was wonderful. It's really like a different world when you are at the Equestrian Center. There have been rumors all last week that Kelly Ripa was in town. And just recently Bruce Springsteen bought a home here because his daughter rides. I wonder if I'll see him in Publix . . . .

A wonderful day was had by all. And the best part is . . . we're done selling Girl Scout cookies for this year! Yeah!!!! Send up the flags!!!

Hope you have a great week!!

I am so jealous! It looked like such lovely weather and I would have loved the event. I am glad that you had a nice/successful time and thank you for sharing. I'll just have to enjoy vicariously today.

Joyce, when I used to show my 2 horses I always wanted to truck them down to your neck of the woods but never made it. I hear it is a wonderful center though. Lucky you to have gone there! Glad you got some pics for Rachel!
