Seen: National Western Stock Show

There is plenty to see at the National Western Stock Show in Denver. It is a showcase featuring the western way of life. Ranching, farming, and much more.

A sampling of what we saw –






The stock show is one of the last places you would imagine in having an “A” rated, USEF hunter/jumper competition. English saddles and equestrian glamour. The five-day equestrian event does seem to fit.

The two-night dressage event, better known as “An Evening of Dancing Horses”, is the high-brow affair (tuxedos and evening gowns) with fine dining on the main arena floor, followed by the dressage exhibition.

    • Much of our fun is people watching, and chatting with other riders and their families. The food part is your standard state fair menu, BBQ turkey legs and everything else fried. Our girls are careful on what they eat, so we end up bringing in our own.
