The Lost Art of the Local Show
Sometimes I think back to my childhood and wonder how things have changed so much in less than 30 years (yes, I’m a young’n). Sometimes I wonder why the local show scene where I live now is so different from where I grew up. Then I wonder if it’s reality that’s changed or just my perspective. Maybe I’m just too focused on the national Morgan scene and the local scene hasn’t actually changed.
Is it just me, or did showing used to be… I don’t know… friendlier? Local shows were well attended and loads of fun. Now there seems to be an attitude of being above showing in a local, open breed show. Oh how I would love to see a return of those weekend and one day shows that were just plain fun. Do they still exist? I sometimes hear rumors of them, but that they’re no fun for Morgan owners because of breed prejudice. Well, if we got out to them more maybe the judges would start to notice us.
Am I on to something here? Or am I just too out of the loop for the local show scene?
