HorseGirlTV® had a wonderful time with one of our partners, Absorbine, shooting a webisode at the Bit of Britain pavilion. The weather and event was beautiful. While the organization, layout and planning wasn’t perfect, they did the best job with what they had and it seemed like most of the spectators were having a wonderful time. Here’s a few more pictures (in addition to our slider photos above) from the WEG experience.

We got to meet Emily Bates from Bates Australia, makers of the Bates and Isabell saddles and it was a wonderfully educating experience. She was such a lovely person!

While at the Bates booth at the trade center, Angelea was approached by the great lady who had bought Angelea’s very first FEI horse, Highlight, many years ago. Highlight went on to a great career with Karen and lived many more years having sadly passed about a year ago. It wasn’t without many tears that Angelea met Karen in person as they’d shared a friendship and love of Highlight throughout Karen’s time with him.

Angelea signed some autographs for fans. She was able to meet a variety of fans at WEG and so wonderful to capture a few photos with some of the younger fans present at the event as well.

What would such an elite event be without brilliant artwork.

Interesting horse show ball. There were some of these scattered throughout the grounds with several at tall as an average sized person. What an interesting idea!

It wasn’t so much the artwork that was brilliantly interesting but the fact they had to put a sign on the art as to deter patrons from playing on it. Hah!

We watched some reining, dressage and cross country and each stadium was beautifully appointed.

Of course a trip to Kentucky without trying a mint julep was impossible.

This was an amazing waterfall welcome from Alltech.
