Last weekend I finally got to go to Northern Virginia and visit my best friend Teri (see the female trainer in the photos with long flowing blonde hair). It was a very busy weekend for her because she was taking her riding students to a "fun" Hunter Jumper Horse Show at a new facility in Great Falls Virginia. It was a ten hour day for all of us but the weather was perfect, and everyone had a great time. Here are some photos from our weekend. PS: I finally had my good camera with me so I could take some action shots!
There were many horses with spots (Appaloosa Horse) and girls with bows in their hair!
On a long hot show day we saw lots of tired horses and tired people!

These are the Turkey Vultures that live at my best friend's farm. There is like 30 or 40 of these big birds hanging around. According to my dog Lexi, you certainly would not want to drop dead nearby these big birds or the authorities might have a tough time finding the "remains" if you know what she means. Happy Pet Blog Hopping! Lexi and Christina
