My daughter is really into horses. Like, REALLY into horses. She loves riding so much, we made the decision to lease a little mare in Elberfeld. I say "lease" and people have no idea what I mean. The owner maintains ownership of the horse, but you can come and ride when you want. The stable she stays at takes care of feeding, watering, stall cleaning, and turnout. And, you get to take her to the fair!

She joined a club in Warrick Co. this year and we've had a blast so far. 4-H Summer Camp was a big highlight. This will be her first fair and I don't know who is more excited - me or her. It will be my first fair too! I've been to other fairs but never Warrick Co.

So, a week ago when I got the schedule, I was shocked at how much there is to do. I was thinking - rides and tractor pulls but there's a fashion show, a magician, motocross, and more!
