Idaho Horse Expo

I made it “down” to Nampa for the Idaho Horse Expo this past weekend. Crowds were almost as good as the weather and there was definitely something for every interest level. It’s always entertaining to watch the activity surrounding the private treaty sale, training clinics, ranch horse events and the trade show.

A real crowd pleaser was the Supreme Cowboy Race, which is basically timed, extreme trail. One of our own, Talea Morgan-Metivier, from Chewelah, Washington, competed with the best of them on two great looking Appaloosas. The picture is of Talea and her four-year-old mare Smart Little Cayenne, by Smart Little Sign (also a star of the event), who is by High Sign Nugget. Thanks Talea for showing of with colorful Appaloosas!

Thanks also to George and Lise Jumper, long-time ApHC folks from Emmett, Idaho, who came by to help at the Appaloosa table.

More photos are in the album (see left hand menu).

    That is super, I know Talea, she did some work on my yearling while we were on vacation some time back. I also know the Jumper’s, I have one of the mares they bred by their stallion. Nice folks all and super representatives of our breed, both equine and human.

    I loved seeing the pictures of me and my horses, Cayenne and Smarty, on this post. The Supreme Cowboy Race was lots of fun! The Appaloosa mare that won the youth division was as sweet and willing as they come! The expo seemed to be a success. Everyone was friendly down there and I got lots of compliments on my Appaloosas. Thanks again!
