Is anybody going to the AQHA horse show in Denison Iowa this weekend?

I am thinking about heading down to this show if my schedule allows me to on Saturday. I would like to check out some opportunities that are available to show my quarter horse mare and her new little filly eventually. The show ring is all new to me so I am rather interested in checking out our options...

I might be headed to the show in Brookings. My daughter's judging coach is showing, so they might go and watch, maybe do a little judging.

We have friends that may be coming down for a 4-H fun show, so we may end up going to that instead.

If you do go to the show in Denison, let us know what you think about it all.

I made it to the Denison show on Saturday. I really did not get to see many classes since my daughter had to be at work at 3. What I did see has sparked my daughter and my interest for sure and I plan on attending a few more shows to see where I could get started.

There is another show in Dension on July 10 - 12 so if things work out I will be there for one of the days....

Does anybody know of any shows that are coming up in the near future???

If you are looking for a variety of shows, check out different county fairs. I know ours will have an open show after the 4-H'ers get done competing with their livestock events. My daughter started out doing the showmanship at halter, and other non-riding events at both the 4-H and open show to gain some experience.

    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
    • Nada for me today. Had some hens come in to give my decoy some company today, but no toms. Sorry I wasn't able to help out on the scoresheet this year. As always, learned some stuff that will make me better next year.
    • We caught plenty of bass this weekend.  However most were small 12-13".  Deep fish were less than eager to bite.  Still seen a couple guarding nests yet. Small plastics fished slowly was by far the best tactic. Only found a couple decent fish, biggest being 19.25".
    • We called at about 4 had them as close behind the blind but never came around for the nephew 
    • What great fun on a 4-weight fly rod!!  Those are dandy panfish.
