It was a fun festival!

      We had wonderful weather for our festival!  Saturday only had a very few sprinkles and the rest of the time it was slightly overcast keeping the temperature down.  Yesterday began with pouring down rain throughout the morning, but since the Festival didn't open till noon we were trying to figure out what to do.  The weather channel seemed to indicate it would stop early afternoon so everyone began to set up as if the Festival would go on--and it did!
      There were not as many people attending as we had hoped, but those who came seemed to enjoy the peaceful, fun, relaxing atmosphere and the good food and great exhibits/vendors/activities.
      Since this was our first horse parade we didn't know quite what to expect but everyone seemed to love it and were enthusiastic about seeing it grow next year.  There were 33 entrants which we felt was a great beginning!  Here are a few pictures from the parade.

These riders were gracious to carry the flags for us.

Mules were a great addition

Roan Aside Side Saddle Group--one who just joined the group didn't feel comfortable trying side-saddle for the whole parade
