Actually, the main things catching my interest this year are the Equine Village, which is apparently a usual part of the World Equestrian Games, but is making an appearance at the Expo first, the demos of WEG events at the night show, the new dog pavilion, and a clinician for gaited horses who uses principles of classical dressage training ( as opposed to some of the questionable training methods in the traditional gaited horse world). I know Lee Ziegler was an advocate for this kind of training for gaited horses, and I’m glad there are other people carrying that forward.
I’m thinking of going on Saturday and staying for the night show.
I’ve found both lovely and silly things at the Expo. My favorite stoneware mugs, featuring horses, or course, were from a business called Mountain Mud, which alas only came for two years. I am still using the rope reins I bought from the Charles Wilhelm booth, as well as one of their leads, and there was a booth one year (again, only the one year) that had a fantastic selection of DVD’s on various breeds and disciplines. That year was the anniversary of the Spanish Riding School being saved by American troops, so they had several DVD’s on the Spanish Riding School , which I bought, of course.
The silly thing was a sort of curry shaped massager, which looked good in theory, but which my horse didn’t like. She prefers the dog and cat rubber groomers you can get at Pet Food Express. Oh well---- The funniest name I have ever seen for a massage item, by the way, was the “Captain Carrot Caresser”.

The weirdest thing I've seen at Horse Expo was a pink manure spreader for The Cure. Susan G Komen Breast Cancer Awareness is apparently everywhere. I once looked under my bed and saw dust bunnies wearing pink ribbons... (apologies to all thin-skinned people everywhere, I just take umbrage at ubiquity, if not trite pedantry.)
