Horsey Christmas IdeasChristmas Horsey Ideas
Trekking is part of our Christmas portraits, so it is only appropriate that our holidays are also celebrated with them. Horse go in full vacation insignia at the Old Fashioned Christmas Horse Parade in Lexington, Michigan. In this year I have chosen to gather these experience and let my horse get me in the right frame of mind for the holidays.
Every year I look forward to the Old Fashioned Christmas Horse Parade in Lexington, Michigan, but what other horse options are there? Buster and Chance's LeSanSha Percherons from Millington, Michigan drove the Christmas coach through the city. Free-ride horse-drawn carriages were a favourite and the line remained full despite the sharp winds.
Most of the houses in our city centre look almost like horse-drawn carriages, so it felt right to feel shoed hoofs knocking through the city. The Percherons crew had a plan to promote the crowds at several other local festivals and ceremonies, the dealer said to me.
The Novi Equestrian Expo this year was perfect for Christmas gifts, and the red-green decoration opened the Christmas period with a horse-like glow. On the stands there were all kinds of gifts for youngsters, from socks full of delicious delicacies for youngsters, to equipment for colder days and hidden calendars. In the stables there were festoons and crowns in the form of ponies.
Infants made their first pony ride, and little cowgirls tried abseiling. It was also a good opportunity to see a demo of Stacy Westfall (on her renowned horses popcorn) and many other lecturers, but the people who came out with full pockets attested that this had been a multitasking experience.
A fair is also a good place to find new emergency or equestrian relief organisations to help with donations at the end of the year. At the Novi Equestrian Exposition all kinds of horse-related presents and vacation decorations were shown. Myself and my wife have a new heritage of traveling to Bronner's Christmas Wonderland, which claimed to be the "World's Largest Christmas Store" to select ornamentation that captures the past year and enchants the youth with never-ending sparkle, light and witchcraft.
In Frankenmuth there are many ponies, where they tramp through the city and over the timber-bridges. I remembered the riding I used to enjoy there in my own early years, the peak of the year for a hippopotamus child like myself. I can now enjoy a trip behind my hoofs and through the Christmas lighting.
Driving carriages full of visitors marched through the Greenfield Village, past historical monuments and star singers in historical costumes. The Greenfield Village was a completely different place than normal and was changed by the festive atmosphere. There were queues to watch car journeys led by draught horsemen, each equipped with their own guitar-playing Caribbean musician.
A skating track, story tellers, chimney sweepers, army re-enactors, Model T trips, reindeers and Santa Claus, who read the bad or beautiful lists, created the festive season scenery - a great opportunity to taste the food, tradition and challenge of Christmas from the US colonies to the Second World War. Percheron's Buster and Chance received the kids' attentions while the coach was again being charged for a bust through the city.
Lighting trees, holidays and processions - often used to bring a little heat into the cold seasons. Coach trips give you the opportunity to relive a town, decelerate for a while and enjoy the views. It is the first toy for many kids to feel the swing of the coach, hear snorting and snorting while stroking a fury dog and a means of transport that can only be seen in film.
You might even be a little Cinderella in yourriage. It is a period of exposure to equestrian facilities open to all, and an occasion to assist working and owner-owned herdsmen. In addition to increasing the feeling of vacation, the search for equestrian enthusiasts makes it possible to be an ambassador in our towns.
If you have a stable full of ponies or just dream of them, it can't be far with your relatives and joy. Please let us know where you can find the right equine for your area. She is a free-lance author and equestrian enthusiast living in Michigan.
