We headed off to Kelsie's house to pick up her horse and her brother's horse. These two horses plus my horse, made a full load in the trailers. We now had 4 saddles, hay for two other horses, and two extra horses in the trailer. My dad and brother took the two seats in the van pulling the horse trailer, and in the other van was my mom, cousin Sam, Me, Kelsie, Taylor, Kennedy, and Zoey. Needless to say it was a tight fit.
Kelsie and I started out the trip nervous about the horse show. Neither of us had ever been to a horse show that big, and out of town before. By the time we had gotten a little ways to Boise our nerves had calmed down, but as soon as we took the exit off to go drop the horses off our butterflies decided to do a few rollbacks and spins. Then we pulled up to the Idaho Horse Park. This place was HUGE, and scary to think about remembering where it all was, and intimidating! Very intimidating. Since Mrs. Cindy wasn't able to come, Kelsie and I had to try and brave it on our own. We had Sam there to help us which was GREAT! She wasn't too nervous about the show the next day, so she was able to keep our heads on straight.
We got there and went in to have the Horse Park people unlock our stalls so that we could get our horses out of the trailer. We decided that the easiest way to do it would be to leave the horses in the trailer, get all the tack put up and the stalls ready then put the horses in the stalls. Most everyone helped with getting stuff put away. Mom had the very imporant job of taking pictures of amything she deemed important or special.
