On a last minute whim Kat headed out to Syracuse, NY to walk the esteemed Syracuse Invitational. The event which is held in downtown Syracuse at the OnCenter Convention Center is a fun event where you’ll see many hunter/jumper athletes walking the streets of downtown to the competition ring which is normally an ice rink. There were many shops with everything from chocolates to massages and of course, horse equipment. During your shopping experience you were able to enjoy watching the warm up ring before horses crossed the street to run their course. The event hosted a series of informational seminars, art exhibitions, information on equine schools and autograph signings with Beezie Madden. It was a different breed of horse show, but definitely one of which that was high class and a lot of fun. It was a pleasure getting to take part in all of it and of course, meeting everyone!
