Denver Queen City Horse Show by WinterSoul

This weekend, July 6th - July 8th, I’ll be with Gypsy Farmhouse Market at the Denver Queen City Horse Show! Admission and parking are free, so if anyone is in the area, please do swing by and say hello. Here’s the info:

Where: Events Center at the National Western Complex
4655 Humboldt St, Denver, Colorado 80216
When: July 6th - July 8th
10 am - 4 pm

Some bonus art that I’m bringing - MLP customs! Some of my friends may have encouraged me last year to make some goat-ponies. It was enough encouragement to push me over the edge, and now these exist. They will be for sale, so why not admire some real ponies, and then give yourself the gift of a goat-pony? ;)

Keep up with the latest news by following my main business sites below:

    Tell me how it went!~

      Yeah... it was terrible, lol! There were several things which the show was not honest or clear about with our organizer, and in the end very few people showed up. (I counted, maybe 15 people were there, but most of them were riders, so they didn't have their wallet on them). I think the most amount of sales anyone made was maybe one or two sales. Plus, at the end of the day, we had to disassemble most of the table since we were placed in a public area, and the hours of the show went beyond what were were told, so someone could easily snag whatever they wanted off our tables. The first day was painful, and I had been questioning if I should even go back, (I've never thought about backing out of a show before, this was new to me). On the way to the second day, my car broke down. I figured that was my answer, haha! Luckily the organizer gave us all the okay to back out if we wanted to, which most of us did.

      For the record, I don't think every animal show would be like this. It was certainly an experiment for everyone involved, (this isn't the type of thing our organizer is used to doing either). On the positive, I have a few more things added to my list of requirements for a show which I wouldn't have thought of if it hadn't been a complete failure. On top of that, my threshold for discomfort at the lack of sales has definitely increased. (Nothing will compare to how dead it was there, haha!) Also, it's a really good personal lesson. I'm stubborn when it comes to giving up on something, but sometimes it's a legit business decision to cut losses and move on. Once I moved on, the rest of the weekend was wonderful!

        woahhhh that sounds like a crash and burn...! :c

        yeah not every gathering would be like that, this sounds like extreme management problems >:c

        it is good that you learned stuff from it, and gained an appreciation for "less is at least any" sales at places.

        glad the rest of the weekend got you some rest and recuperation!

          Yep, that sums it up, haha! For sure, the next couple are already looking to be better managed. Even if they don't turn out to be the best cons I've ever had, I have a feeling they'll still require me to be on my best game, so the recuperation is going to be useful! :)
