You just HAVE to go to the Derby this weekend, dahlings. I have not figured out exactly what this is, but I know I want to see it!
If this is not your sort of event, check out the many other options on the Big Calendar, to the right on this page. There are a couple of fun obstacle clinics, a reined cow horse show and lots more.
Whatever you do, have fun with your pony!
