Spring Expos help Prepare for Summer Riding
by Karen Pickering
I look forward to spring and summer as this is the time of year to get out on the trails, go camping and enjoy the outdoors. It’s a chance for our horses to stretch their legs, too, especially if they’re cooped up in winter. My horses are in sacrifice areas during the wet season so I know they are just busting to get out and kick up their heels.
I’ve just returned from the Northwest Horse Fair & Expo in Albany, Oregon. It was a great weekend to reconnect with friends and readers. It was a special expo for me since my good friends Raye and Sharon Lochert attended this year. I’m so thankful for the connections and friends I’ve made as publisher of this magazine; I’m truly blessed!
Expos help us get connected with new products, clinicians and training methods. I especially appreciated the readers that stopped by our booth to tell us how much they enjoy the magazine and hope we keep it in print. With the support of clients and readers, we are doing our best to make that happen.
Farnam Company donated great items for our drawings Saturday and Sunday afternoon. Dan Larick, the Western Regional Sales Manager for Farnam, helped us celebrate Saturday’s winner. Congratulations to Susan Arnholtz and Kat Essary who won great Farnam horse care products. It pays to stop by and see us! If you haven’t signed up for our reader newsletter I would encourage you to take a moment and sign up. It’s a bi-monthly e-newsletter full of upcoming news, events, horse keeping and training tips, new products and great offers from clients. Just visit our website and subscribe from our online form: www.nwhorsesource.com.
We’ll see you on the trail sometime!
