We are back from the Great Celebration! It was great to get to visit with all the subscribers there! Camri placed fourth in 10 and under barrels and fifth in 10 and under walk trot. I placed fifth in both of my jumping classes (hunter hack and open working hunter). Cole placed in several of the gymkhana classes, and was very happy with how his younger mule Betty and older mule BB did. I came home with a list of things to work on, but am overall very happy with how Maggie and Hoosier performed.
Camri had a great time. She would sit and watch the classes for hours if we let her. She learned a lot about showing this weekend, and decided she really liked the walk/trot class. She also loved the shopping! I think she visited every booth numerous times, but frequented Jackson's Western Store the most, and came home with quite a few purchases from there (earrings, stuffed animals...). She also made friends with the beagles down the isle from the Mules and More booth and was sad to have to tell them goodbye.
We are now working on our September issue, deadline August 1. We are also getting ready for the Columbia, Mo., mule show during their fair (July 28 at 5 p.m.). It is the same time as our fair here in Owensville, and Camri is very excited about that week!
