Do you incorporate horses into your vacation? If I’m with the husband, I do my best not to, but often it crops up somehow anyways.
While going to watch 3* and 4* events are a blast, I haven’t always consider them vacations. Although with the wine, friends, and booze, maybe I should have. Do normal people consider it a vacation when they travel to see their favorite team play?
The one trip I have been on that is definitely a vacation, and definitely horsey, was with my mother back in 2005. We went to the Ballinasloe Horse Fair in Ireland, which my grandad had always talked about but neither of us had witnessed. I kid you not, I have never seen that many horses in one place before or after that fair.
We then made our way up the west coast of Ireland, incorporating beach rides and cross country schoolings into our trip.
The trip is definitely a highlight of my life, and a time with my mother that I’ll always appreciate. What I would do to go back with a bunch of horsey friends and do it all again!
What equestrian related trips have you taken in the past? What are some particularly memorable moments of these trips? What’s on your bucket list? Do horses find their way into your vacations often?
