Horse Fair!

A couple of weekends ago we took a family trip to Golega for their annual horsefair. This town lives and breathes horses, and proclaims themselves the horse capital. The center of town has a huge outdoor arena with a riding track around the outside, and stables built into the cozy squares all around town. During the 10 day long fair there are lots of daily events, and horses absolutely everywhere. The streets have wooden fencing inserted to keep a path for the horses being ridden (or driven) to the arena, and the whole place was bustling with horse and non-horse people alike, and shops selling every possible item of horse paraphernalia you can imagine. I of course was too excited to take any pictures of the whole going on, but Dan managed to snap a few for us. Unfortuantely for him, Amelia also seemed quite taken by the big kittys. I sense an expensive hobby in her future!
