Last Friday I scooted off to the Melbourne showgrounds for Equitana, Australia’s “Premier Equine Extravaganza” and full-on horsey-fest. I’ve never been to one of these before and had no idea how huge it would be. The place was packed, not just with people but with stalls and demonstrations and everything you can imagine related to horses. In other words, bliss!

I took lots of pics to moon over later in the privacy of my own home but some things, like lovely horses, are meant to be shared. So here is a little of what I saw…


Too cute for words horses!

Magnificent horses.


Action horses

Fancy horses.


Superstar horses. Well, Black Caviar’s (aka Nelly) compression suit anyway.


Curious baby horses


Mechanical horses (for training jockeys)


Want one for my backyard horses


And by the end of the day, this is exactly how I felt. Zzzzzz.
