Ahh I have so much to write about for the Ft. Worth hunter jumper show! Week long shows gives one a lot of material to write about. In this post I’m going to focus on the venue (Will Rogers Memorial Center) and the experience from the competitor’s point of view.
This show was the first hunter/jumper show in Ft. Worth in recent memory (over 20 years). Put on by Patrick Rhodes (Southbound Show Management) partnered with Erin Davis-Heineking (see my pre-show interview with Erin here), all the competitors were very excited to check out the “new” venue. I had showed at Will Rogers Memorial Center many times during my early junior years at Arabian breed shows, so for me this show was a bit of a homecoming.
