Festival of Dressage

Over the weekend I had a tradestand at the Festival of Dressage. It was quite a quiet affair, mainly attended by the competitors and a few members of the public so tradewise it was pretty slow. As with all shows though, time will tell how many commissions I make but sales of prints and cards were definitely down. Luckily I had a good view of the outside arena and was able to watch some top class dressage all weekend. Very impressive but with my riding skills, I should definitely stick to hacking out! The weather was VERY windy with a few showers so there were a few hairy moments sat inside my tent. It managed to stay put all weekend... until we emptied it on the Sunday afternoon and, because we live quite near, we drove my prints etc home and left the tent to take down later. We arrived back to find the tent in a crumpled heap on the floor after it had apparently taken off across the field!! Very embarrassing and sadly there's a couple of holes in my new tent but here's a photo of it at the beginning of the weekend when it was in one piece.
