Walnut Hill 2010

Walnut Hill. What can I say that will do today justice in this blog?  First, I think the competitors, volunteers, managment, and even spectators have honored Bill Remley by making this year’s competition the biggest and best yet. So many people commented on how the quality of turnout is superior. The number of horses and ponies entered – 280 – is the largest ever.  There are 60 single ponies! They’ve been divided into large and small, and those classes have been divided into A and B. The Miniature Horses have their own division. There were 16 entries in the Junior Turnout class this morning. The costume class was over the top. It’s hard to remember that this is a horse show when one sees all the flowers, landscaping, and the beautiful cross country course. Attention to detail is beyond description.  So as they say pictures are worth a thousand words, I’ll get on with it and give you a few photos from the 400 or so I shot today.  Many of these are to give those who haven’t had the Walnut Hill experience a sense of the show.  So my apologize to those who wish to see horses and carriages.  I’ll post more tomorrow.

    • A woman in Pittsford does the painting on furniture. All her work is really outstanding. Worth the trip just to see it all.
