Our Recent Trip To The Colorado Horse Expo in Aurora
We recently took a trip to the Western Colorado Horse Expo and it was quite an adventure! We loaded up the whole family (two kids, two dogs but only one wife) and hit the road. It took us about 7 hours to make the trip and I have no regrets about not loading up the trailer and bringing Buckaroo and Bonzai with us.
There were a lot of bathroom breaks and a lot of singing. The singing is pictured below:
We did have one minor hiccup so to speak. My Aussie, Domino, often gets car sick. It makes trips with him…not so great. We have tried skipping breakfast which at least prevents us from having a bunch of half eaten kibble in the car but we still end up with a dog that is clearly uncomfortable and just wretching in the back seat. All the while his dog buddy Tigger is bouncing around and enjoying the sites.
We made it with minimal discomfort- on everyone’s part! We had a great time and really talked to a lot of great people about the Western Colorado Equine Club. I expect to see some new members rolling in soon!
All in all, the horse expo was great and the whole family enjoyed it. Some enjoyed the ride there more than others. I plan on writing a series of articles about the Expo and what I would like to see next year.
I also plan on writing an article revealing how I plan to participate next year!
