Front-row seats at the horse showAugust 17th, 2009 at Mon, 17th, 2009 at 1:37 pm by Roy Jacobson
Ann Tuttle and Carol Coble of Freeland have two of the best seats in the house for the horse competitions.
Their RVs are parked on a little ridge right above the action, front-row center.
“It’s a blast, we love doing this,” Coble said Thursday.
They didn’t have to park outside the fairgrounds for three days to be first in line for the prime spots. The parking places are assigned to leaders of the various 4-H horse clubs, Tuttle said.
This year’s front row included vehicles owned by other horse-club leaders, with a couple of dog-club leaders thrown in down at the end, she said.
Tuttle and Coble are co-leaders of the South Whidbey Sat N Saddles Club. Coble’s daughter Missy and Tuttle’s daughter Megan are both 18 and in their final year of 4-H competition.
“It’s a lot of fun connecting and hanging out with our teenaged daughters,” Coble said.
