Favorite Thing About Oklahoma

So I know it’s rather early to start talking about grand nationals, but I just found out the other day that I’m going, and I’m, well, …REALLY EXCITED!!! I haven’t gone since 2005? That seems like such a long time ago. I was a mere walk-trotter, and I can’t seem to remember too much. All I can remember is the feeling I had when I walked into the Coliseum. I don’t think you ever forget that feeling. I wasn’t quite sure whether to cry, laugh, jump up and down, or cower in fear! I’m pretty sure I decided on just standing there in awe, mouth agape, until my mom got concerned. I recall reading about some changes made to the show grounds? ……I CAN’T WAIT! (Enough rambling, back to the point). Alright, so what are you guys’ favorite things about the GNWCMHS?

    My favorite part is getting to see the horses I have been seeing in all the magazines in real life. And the feeling during the big classes and during the victory passes. There is nothing quite like the victory passes on the last weekend–I am getting goosebumps just thinking about it! OKC here I come!

    My favorite part is walking into the coliseum for the first time, smelling the tanbark and seeing the banners….Quite impressive. Coming down the shoot on a horse, one gets a wave of cool air-conditioning in your face and it really means “you’re here!”

    There are so many. Where to start….

    Going down the chute and through the ingate, when the nervous nausea leaves; you get that thrilled and excited feeling and get down to work.
