When I say Richland is in the middle of a cornfield, I mean that Richland is LEGITIMATELY in the middle of a cornfield. (OK, there are some soybeans too, but mostly corn.)
But you can’t help but love that, instead of getting all uppity-up wine-and-cheese dog-and-pony show with their event, Richland has opted to just embrace its inner Farmer Joe.
Here are four times they took the Midwestern agriculture theme and just ran with it:
When they served whole ears of corn, harvested just that morning, at the competitor’s party.
When they used corn as a cross-country theme.
When the show jumping course, too, was agri-themed.
And last but not least, when Richland’s neighbors decided to dress up their round bales.
Go Midwestern Eventing.
