Iowa State Horse Fair

Fun Photo Friday

I enjoyed a weekend at the horse fair in Des Moines. There was so much to see at the trade show, a lot of horses in the barns, and a lot of clinics and classes to attend.

This is the hair of a North American Curly horse. It is almost like a poodle! At the Horse Fair, they had a barn fun of many different breeds for us to see.

The big guys are so well trained that they know right and left side stepping from a voice command.

I am at the point of my riding skills to be really confused about all of the kinds, shapes and styles of bits for bridles. This cowboy was giving a clinic on the different types and how they fit in to a horse’s mouth. The skull was a perfect way to demonstrate that.

In addition to all of the tack, saddles, show clothes and saddle blankets for sale, they also had horse trailers on display. Not just bare bones trailers but $70,000 mini apartments with a bathroom horse trailers!
