Yesterday I fulfilled a promise to a friend to help her out at one of the horse shows she organizes. My schedule was open and I worked as a desk person. I basically took open checks and cash, handled entries and post entries, passed out show numbers and freed up the woman who handles all the important stuff involving record keeping and such to focus on getting everything entered on her laptop as quickly and correctly as possible.
And it was a blast! It was fun to see old familiar faces from my horse show days and the glimmer of recognition when they realized it was me. I have lost track of time and forgotten how long I've been out of that world. The best was when my own trainer walked in and saw me there. He got this evil grin on his face and said, "I didn't know you were working this one." and I smiled and said, 'You didn't ask." Then we cracked up. I know he found it amusing.
It's the first time I was behind the secretary's desk at a show. I'm so used to being on the other side. I would definitely do it again!

Worked at a Horse Show!

I love volunteering at shows. It's great to be involved without the pressure of competing. :)
How fun! Glad you enjoyed it. I worked in a draft horse show office once. That can be fast-paced work. :-)
I really like your blog, but I just have one question - How do you get all those awards?
Hello loveforbooks, thank you for the compliment and welcome to my blog! Thanks for asking about the awards. They were all bestowed upon me by fellow bloggers who enjoyed my writing. Keep blogging, and as your followers grow, you may be pleasantly surprised to find an award waiting for you, too!
Always nice to see a show from a new perspective. Glad you had a good time.
