Morgan Grand Nationals

Hi everyone =) I'm new to the community, so I'll take a quick minute to introduce myself. My name is Irene and I own three horses - two ponies and the love of my life, my Morgan mare Rio A Diva. Unfortunately I have no English horses at the moment (sad face; "Ria" is a Hunter Pleasure horse, though I'm toying with the idea of taking her Classic next year) but have grown up with, started, shown, and ridden many. I'll be going to William Woods in January to further this crazy saddleseat addiction. =)

Anyhow, I figured that there was a good chance someone in this community was headed to the Morgan Grand National in October. Do I have any takers?? This will be our first time down there (this is the part where I turn green) and I'm so NERVOUS!! If anyone's been down there before, can you possibly tell me about warmup rings, what the barns are like (size of stalls, flooring, blah blah blah), what to watch out for, what to enjoy like mad... and so on. I have friends going as well and will be stabling with a friend's barn (Summit Morgans out of Delano, MN) but am essentially doing this on my own (this isn't anything new; I've been showing by "myself" + a groom usually for about three years and it hasn't stopped our progress any).
