OKC Trip: Summary

How do you summarize a trip to OKC?  For me it feels like there was a lot of sensory overload that blurs the experience.  I would definitely go back, but I think I would give myself at least an extra day to take it all in.  I wish I’d done a better job of checking…

OKC Trip Day 2: Horse Show ADD

No matter where I go I always feel like I’m missing something somewhere else. That sums up today quite well. I’m having a hard time settling in to any one place because I don’t want to miss anything that could be going on wherever I’m not. Today was good… a bit long. There were a…

OKC Trip Day 1: Mostly Driving

Well, I’m here.  I left my house a little before noon today and pulled in just as the evening sessions were getting started.  Before I just gloss over the trip, though, I’d like to give a tip to anyone who has not driven through the state of Oklahoma before.  If you’re like me, you’re used…

Catering to the Smaller Morgan Barns

this popped up in the Horse show scheduling thread: “I also think if we want the breed to grow we need to make it friendly to the smaller barns.” and i was going to comment on it, but i figured to just start another thread on the whole topic. Doing my National entries a few…

Coming back to OKC after seven years away – Update me on changes!

Hey all, I’m planning on taking my mare to OKC this year.  This is my first time going to Nationals on my own, and it’s been seven years since I last went, so I’m trying to plan things out super-early. I’m basically a nobody with only one horse, so I’m guessing I will again be…
