The Mane Event
September is a time for changing seasons and what better way to spend a Saturday night then enjoying a show at the Heartland Equestrian Center. This year’s equestian production “The Mane Event” was a hit with the locals. The event is sponsored in part by Country Time 4-H and Heartland Equestrian Center. Operation Homefront was their charity of choice this year. The show was well attended and the performers were awesome. Author, Katie Hardiman was the announcer for the evening. Katie just published her book, The Nutcracker Stallion and was there signing books for her new fans. Quintin Boots returned to play some tunes with his guitar and the Country Hoopers did a spectacular routine with their hoops. New comer, Kristin Keller opened the show with the national anthem and later sang God Bless the USA as Quintin played on the guitar. Fit for a Cause, a group of women who met while working out got the crowd going with their version of the Village people in YMCA. Let’s not forget the horses. Two year old Savannah was full of spunk and Sundae left the audience guessing what she would do next. Cheyenne was the hit of the night, performing her routines with graceful movements and perfection beyond my wildest expectations. She was a big crowd pleaser to say the least. It was like coming home, after a year away from the arena I realize how much I love being with my horses and sharing them with others. I am hopeful that after a much needed rest I will begin some new “horse related” adventures.
