I guess its a really big deal, now. I was raised in Clinton, and have been exactly once, and that was back in the late 80's. It was basically like going to a rodeo then. From what I hear people come from all over the US.

It is when ya gotta put up with drunk-ass redneck sonzabitches. I tend to avoid places and events with huge numbers of people drinking massive quantities of booze.

I lived in Clinton when they first started to get into it. I went a couple of times since my dad and brother were into the horse stuff. I have lots of family that still live in Clinton. I make it back every now and again but don't show up for the chuckwagon races.

Just got back from there. Me and the wife stayed all week. Had a great time as always.

I believe they checked in 6500+ horses and mules this year. This was my tenth year, and plan on many more to come.

There is really alot of good folks you meet there, but you do have a few that get outta hand here and there. They ain't tolerated very well and are usually booted out VERY quickly. Mostly younger guys who can't handle there liquor. Out of about 25,000 people who attend , you might see one or two fights, mainly at a party. We don't really attend the parties, we just like to trail ride, hang out with camping friends, throw horseshoes, shoot the shit around camp, and we have never had any trouble. Now where I'm talking about is in the bottom area where the horses are, I've never been up on the topside too much, except for the concerts. Its mainly for folks who just want to drive up for the day to watch the races. No horses allowed on the topside.
