FARMLANDS HORSE OF THE YEAR 17TH-22ND MARCH 2015
What is it, you say?
Farmlands Horse of the Year Show is the largest equestrian event in the Southern Hemisphere hosted annually at the Hawke’s Bay A&P Showgrounds in March, which has been held for 16 years.Equestrians from 17 Equestrian Disciplines compete for the title of Farmlands Horse of the Year within their Section. Both equestrian and non-equestrian people can come and experience the excitement of the Showjumping and Eventing competitions with the beauty of the Showing and Dressage classes, the delicacy of the Miniatures with the might of the gentle giants, the Clydesdales. There are over 200 trade sites to satisfy all of your retail therapy needs from saddlery and farm equipment to clothing and jewellery, and there are fri/sat night shows to entertain the crowd with tough competition and action and displays very rarely seen in such a setting.
We will be there in the Stallion Marquee, letter H on their map, from Thursday through Sunday, in the Blue Mist Publishing/ The Long Trail Rolling booth!
We plan to spend plenty of time speaking with people about A Long Trail Rolling, the next three books in The Long Trails series, and writing and publishing in general! If people want books signed, we can do that as well.
If we’re not in our booth, I’ll be signing books at the Horse & Pony Bookshop booth at the Dressage Arena!
Still awaiting confirmation: If it works out, I’ll also be doing some equine veterinary dentistry talks while we’re down there. Keep an eye out at the booth in H!
Looking forward to seeing you!
(It shouldn’t be hard to find you… there will only be 85,000 other people there over the six days of the show! Big show for a little country, indeed! )
