North Stonington Fairgrounds
Wyassup Road, N. Stonington, CT
The NLC 4-H Fair/Expo is open to the public.
All 4-H'ers in New London County are welcome at the Fair! It doesn't matter if you are in a community-based club, an afterschool program, or a science program. In addition to the animal shows throughout the weekend, 4-H'ers can enter posters, art, flowers and vegetables, baked goods, photography- check out all the stuff you can enter in the Fairbook below.
Did you know you can enter your pet in the Fair too? Even if your pet is a lizard or goldfish or cat or puppy! And the Pet Show is 'open, ' which means you can have a friend enter the show with you, even if they aren't in 4-H. Click here for the entry form.
How is the Mn Horse expo?
I wanted to go the big azz world horse expo and didn't make it (yet). I did manage to go to the Peruvian Paso Nationals in Tx, years ago. It was a blast!!!! I still have a T shirt from it. I refuse to throw it out. lol.
A few hundred years ago I went to the Kansas City Royal. :D
No I didn't go to ride, I was totally a spectator. It was a good thing, I'd have fell off a lot due to all my rubber necking.
I know of one place you might be
Able to volunteer.
Have you ever attended the MN Horse Expo? It is held every year (3rd weekend in April) at the MN State Fairgrounds.
One year, I volunteered to walk horses for the children's pony rides. It just consisted of walking around and around, leading a horse with kids on them.
This would at least give you an opportunity to meet some other horse-centric people. Express your interest in volunteering, and get to know some people in the horse world.
I can find you a link if you are interested?
