Western Idaho Fair

Impressive Team of Horses
At any Fair, there are tons of things to see. I love watching just about anything to do with horses, but this is impressive not just because of the horses. You can't tell from this photo really, but this contest has a pretty intricate course marked off by yellow cones. The contestants have to weave their way in/around/thru without touching the markers, while pulling these long logs. This guy did such a great job. It was not necessary to 'ride' the logs, but he did. That in itself must be a challenge. Some other contestants didn't even try, some tried and had to hop off, or couldn't help 'hopping' off. AND this team nor logs ever TOUCHED any marker. If you look at the sand, you can see some of the circles marked in the sand, where he had previously already gone in the course.

I am interested in this Community, County, and the beautiful state of Idaho. Most of my photos will be in Idaho, but from time to time, they will be my vacations aay from Idaho. You'll see lots of my Children and Grand children, along with others in my family. Of course there will be horses and horse related things, and things I photo'd horseback.
