    2010 World Equestrian Games, Lexington KY - NO FIREARMS ALLOWED

    My wife has the horse disease... Probably born with it.

    Myself, while I really don't believe in reincarnation, I often have strong feelings of holding the centurion's horse in Roman times. In other words, I am the anti-horse whisperer.

    My wife turned on the 'cute' face and asked if I could get tickets for the cross country part of the games. Well, I did and am now a bona fide "hero".

    Bad part is that they stipulate 'No Firearms' in 'da rules. Don't really like being around a few thousand people unarmed...

    Anyone know if they will be using metal detectors or just a security check point (kind of like at Disney)?

    Thanks!

    Bill

    Sorry I can't help but I understand your life. Sounds like mine. Yeah, they're born with it and it doesn't manifest itself until after you're married. Much too late. Me.....John Deere. I'm the maintenance department. But that's OK, the tractor hasn't bucked me off yet. No vet bills. Shoes every 10 years or more. No hay, no shots, no stalls.

    You lucky dog you. Tickets and time off to go to the equestrian games.... *sigh* My wife and I want to attend so bad..... BUT, not a chance this year.

    Va folks will need to chime in here to say if "no guns" signs means no CCW.

    As for me, color me jealous.

    Go enjoy the event with your wife. Remember - she owes you, now.

    Enjoy your life. I love these weirdos who say, "I won't ever go if I can't carry my gun."

    You have a greater chance of being struck by lightening at this event. How much lightening insurance are you carrying?

    Even more likely you'll be run over by a horse.

    Let me give you a little advice from someone who's been married a few times. When I looked back at my last failed marriage, I realized that she had made every effort to do things that I enjoyed. I on the other hand, had seldom done anything that was important to her. I always had an excuse. And there is a difference between an excuse and a reason.
    For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    seconded. My first marriage fell apart for the same reason. if it's something she truly loves it is worth it.

    She has to have her turn to pick an event, you'll still be the hero even when the event is over!

    It's not illegal to carry there, the policy notwithstanding.

    Hayley is correct. Now, if you are seen to be carrying, they ask you to leave, and you do not do so promptly, you may be charged with trespassing.

    Carry on!

    As someone involved in horse sports....it will be an amenable crowd...not likely to be potentially dangerous.

    At our big (& small) shows, the kids (even little ones) run around in packs and folks look out for them...or yell at them for spooking the horses.

    And most of our shows are at fairgrounds, etc where no guns are allowed either.

    So if you choose not to carry, I hope you wont feel too uncomfortable.

    It's a big reason why I left mine sitting on the couch that he never got off of.

    I'm pretty sure it would be illegal in FL (sporting event--baseball, football, etc.).
