This weekend we went to our first Queens Cup Steeplechase Horse Race in Mineral Springs, NC. And what a great time we had! Tons of spectators come out here every year in their big hats and fancy dress. Everyone has their own picnic including drinking great beer and wine all while enjoying the race.
The horses are just beautiful, they are so sleek and muscular up close.

The horses were so fast, the ground shook when they went by.
We had such a great time at this fun pastime large picnic & cocktail party! So fun! I am already excited for next year!
