Free Equestrian Events

I have always said that there are some major advantages to living in Henderson just outside of Vegas.  Of course everyone immediately refers to the shows that are downtown but, to be honest, shows aren't really my thing.  I think they're way too over priced, even with the local discount (two for one tickets).  But there are a lot of other great things to do in Vegas besides gamble and see the shows.  There are a ton of concerts and other events that are more up my alley and it just so happens that I have a found a new guilty pleasure that I plan to take full advantage of.

As it turns out, one of the smaller casinos near the strip has an arena for hosting equestrian events and their calendar is loaded with events that are FREE for the public.  Oh yeah baby ... my favorite word in the English language: free.  Starting tomorrow the 5th Annual Arabian Breeders World Cup will be going on through Sunday and it's free to the public.  Yep ... FREE!  I'm so excited.  I love horse shows and equestrian events of all kinds but usually they're quite expensive so I am shocked and thrilled that this one is free.  And it's not the only one!  There will be a free miniature horse show next weekend that is also free and a rodeo at the end of the month that is only $10 for a two-night pass.  Can you believe that?

So I've discussed it with Snackers and he is all for attending; he likes horses too.  I'm jazzed!  I'm going to have to find a place that can stretch and reshape my hat though ... I tried to put it on last weekend and it is all messed up.  In my horseback riding days that hat saw some serious adventure. LOL

I literally broke a sweat during my math test tonight so, technically, I suppose I could count that on this weeks activity goal but I'm not gonna.  Off I go to work out.
