This week the Roanoke Valley Horse Show is in town. What that means to all of us CEC's (Chief Executive Cowchicks) is it is a time to celebrate everything equestrian. All of us who are involved in the horse industry find one way or another to make sure we find time to run over the the Salem Civic Center to watch all the amazing riders showing their horses and visit with old friends. Many of these talented equestrians travel all over the country following the horse show circuit to earn points and make a living. What you will also see on the RVHS show grounds is all the horse show dogs who travel with their owners on the circuit. The following photos are from this past week where you will see a mix of the fancy horse show tents, horses competing, friends hanging out on their horses, and of course the dogs casually walking around the show grounds like they don't have a care in the world. Enjoy! Lexi and Christina
