There is nothing like the celebration....just a wonderful tradition and a great experience for all. You have to pick up the donuts outside of the arena....eat em all!

“Horse Extravaganza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012 via mobile

I have been to several Celebrations, it is a ten day long horse extravaganza. They have classes for dogs, children on "stick horses", weaklings shown in halter, yearlinga down on halter, youth riders, mares, stallions, flat shod, plantation shod, and"big lick" (2-3 plastic wedges between the hoof and the shoe on the front legs). They have versatility classes with barrel racing, pulling carts or wagons, obstacle courses, etc.

They have classes for all age riders, from 5-10 years old, up to an over 70 class, this class has been won the last several years by a man in his 90's. In addition, they have all age horses compete against each other, one class is for horses over 15 years. In most breeds horses are to lame or are used up by age 5 to continue showing or competing, it is a tribute to these animals that they can continue to compete even at an advanced age.

It is a carnival atmosphere, fresh donuts, country ham sandwiches, beans and cornbread, hamburgers, fresh lemonade, etc. They even sell cedar wood sticks for those who like to whittle! It always starts the last week in August and lasts about 10 days.

There are some great restaurants in the area with mostly home style country cooking. The landscape is beautiful and the people are very friendly and accommodating. It is a great family vacation spot, especially if you love horses.
