24 hours ago I had no intention of attending Novice Championships. It was nice to say that I had qualified but that was it. I mean get serious a horse show in Las Vegas? Besides there will be good riders there, the kind that actually show AQHA. Still, I found myself checking the driving distance and route from my house to Southpoint Hotel and Casino (20 hours). I was just getting ready to log off for the night when Sarah IM’d me. She mentioned that she knew someone who had a layover farm in Idaho, which just so happens to be on the route to Vegas from here. Before I knew it the conversation turned from me telling her why I shouldn’t go this year to us discussing all the reasons I should go this year. Like the fact that they are offering a flat rate entry fee of $275 which INCLUDES stall! OMG I think we are actually going to do this! VEGAS!
