The Equine Village at the WEG – Paso Finos!

Amazingly gifted and dedicated riders and their horses who have wowed the global stage with their accomplishments in the official competitions of the World Equestrian Games over these past weeks. But the fun hasn’t stopped with them. Oh no ma’am. Not by a long shot! Throughout other venues more celebrations, demonstrations and clinics have been going on day in and day out. It’s as though the fun has been never ending – the things to do and see relentlessly taking a hold of sanity and causing people to spend hour after hour engaged in all things equine. Here is a quick look at a show in the Equine Village highlighting the fun that is the experience of the Paso Fino horse.

In addition to the marvelous array of activities at the Kentucky Horse Park, there have also been three other major venues associated with this big festival including the International Festival of the Horse in downtown Lexington, Spotlight Lexington featuring Kentucky arts and music and the tents in Georgetown highlighting even more activities and trade fair exhibits. If any horse lover walks out of here with any money left at all it will be a miracle! If they leave with hopes unfulfilled I think it may only be because they ran out of time or money. I know I did.

It takes a village to put on a show like this.....

  2. Thanbks again fo sharing.
    BTW I heard the folks at the BLM booth were NOT nice. Maybe they have been gettinmg some flack about their “managing for extinction” of our wild horses and burros. Please pay them a visit and give them some facts. Thanks.
    Wish I could get there .

  3. Hey Marti Mu, I ended up heading over to the Paso Fino exhibition the other day (unfortunately, the clinician I went to see in that corral did not hold my attention very well, I think I’ve been spoiled now by Clinton Anderson!). Anyway, the Paso Fino’s put on a GREAT show! I really want to try that wine thing on horseback now with my little gaited boy, Sunday…. well, perhaps I should practice some of the Clinton Anderson stuff with him FIRST.
