Augusta Weekend

This past weekend my husband and I spent a few days in Augusta, Georgia (about 1-1/2 hours from home).  The purpose of the trip was to visit the Augusta Cutting Horse Futurity (more about that later), but the first order of business was a bit of relaxing with a “Bahama Mana”…..

On Saturday we started the morning with a walk around the Canal area…..

Then, on to the futurity.  Before the contests started, we walked around the vendors and I was amazed at all of the things that could be purchased….much like our quilt show vendor malls……

But the highlight of the evening was the cutting horse competition.  It is such fun to see the way that the horse and rider work together.   Here is a video that I shot….

Great post. Love the pub name and the shortness of James Brown. Brilliant video. I have never seen any cutting horse competition before. Amazing control in such a small area.
