    I'll be there the entire time representing MGAA. Doing a demo on Thursday morning (right after Bruce Davidson!) a clinic on Thursday afternoon and have a booth in the Mallory center through the whole event. Stop by and say hi! I'll most likely be stuck in the booth.

    Mounted games across America! One of the two affiliated members of the Mounted Games Association, which is a world-wide organization devoted to the sport of mounted games. It's like gymkhana games, in a team format, so sort of relay races on horseback. Tons of fun! My daughter started playing games in Pony Club, and moved on to MGA as she aged out of PC. Now I'm playing too, in the fossil division.

    It's a blast! We don't have any competitions in New England, but we're hoping to generate some interest and maybe form our own association up here. Right now we travel between 8 and 10 hours to compete once a month six months out of the year.

    We will be doing a 2 team demo on Thursday morning, a clinic Thursday afternoon, and will have a booth for the whole event, with videos, brochures and friendly games riders to answer questions.

    I hope to see folks there!

    Going on Saturday. Taking my 11 yo niece who lives close by.
    Of course it's a sacrifice that aunts have to make sometimes - sure I'll get nothing out of it!
    Is there any official COTH uniform or secret handshake, so we might know each other in passing?

    Perhaps anyone who goes should wear a name tag with our COTH name...only other COTHers would recognize it

    I'll be wearing my MGAA sweatshirt all weekend. Don't think there'll be too many of those around.

    I think my booth is in the Stroh building, I said Mallory earlier, it's in the building with the breed displays, that was all they had left and they squeezed us in.

    Okay Kids, 4cornersfarm has graciously agreed to have the Meet Up of COTH members at her booth. Let's stop by on Saturday at 1 p.m.

    Here's info about the booth and the organization:

    http://www.mountedgames.org/

    Mounted games across America! One of the two affiliated members of the Mounted Games Association, which is a world-wide organization devoted to the sport of mounted games. It's like gymkhana games, in a team format, so sort of relay races on horseback. Tons of fun! My daughter started playing games in Pony Club, and moved on to MGA as she aged out of PC. Now I'm playing too, in the fossil division.

    We will be doing a 2 team demo on Thursday morning, a clinic Thursday afternoon, and will have a booth for the whole event, with videos, brochures and friendly games riders to answer questions.

    I hope to see folks there!


    Here is her info about the booth location:

    It's number 2117 I think. I'm pretty sure it's in the Stroh building, it's the breed display building, even though we are not a breed organization.

    I'm going! It's my first time, and I've got the boyfriend with me, so he will have lots of learning to do! I'll be there on Saturday, so I will definitely wander on over! Can't wait to actually meet some COTHers in person!

    Now I have to remember to be there at 1. Making a mental note. Hoping it sticks.

    Looks like I have lots of help in the booth that day, so I should be able to socialize. Looking forward to meeting folks!

    Got to meet HPFarmette, but nobody else. Sorry I missed you, I guess some folks stopped in while I was out and about. We'll be there next year!
