Forget the fancy celebrities in attendance. Forget the accomplished Olympic riders. Forget the rows and rows of amazing vendors. I was soooo excited when I noticed Gus Forbush working the terrier races on the floor Thursday night!

I’m just joking about forgetting about all the cool things that make WIHS such a fun show but I have to say getting to say hi and visit briefly with Gus as well as his wife Sandra really made my trip worth while! They are such wonderful people and such genuine horse folks! I hope I can figure out how to get up to VA and go out hilltopping with them this season!

Oh yeah… the terrier races were fun to and what an exciting surprise to run into Wendy from Horse Country walking two successful racing terriers with her! It felt like a family reunion for me that night!
