Horse World Expo With Gloria & Ashlea

Friday, February 28

Harrisburg Farm Show Complex and Expo Center

This came about because Gloria had not come to a decision as to what she wanted to do for her birthday – which was in December.

When I saw this event advertised, I immediately thought of her – and she loved the idea of going.

I thought it might be fun for her to take her friend Ashlea along, who is also a horse-lover and my great-niece – one of my sister’s granddaughters. They loved that plan, and it was agreed that we would pick them up on Friday evening after school.

We arrived shortly after 5:00 p.m. and began our visit in Exposition Hall where there were many vendors and a variety of horses.

1 (2)Gloria wanted to get a few items for her miniature horse and found what she wanted here.

1 (3)They were more anxious to see horses, so before long we purchased something for supper and went to the Equine Arena where the Parade of Breeds was set to begin.

1 (7)I found this to be a delightful atmosphere in which to sit and enjoy my cheeseburger and Pepsi.

1 (6)I should have Gloria and Ashlea with me as I enter this post, because they could tell me which breed each of these are.

1 (5)Yes, he is carrying a falcon as these horses are used in the sport of falconry.

1 (4)It was interesting to listen to the traits of each breed and watch the riders display a variety of gaits.
