Ohio Equine Affaire to include ApHC Town Hall meeting

The Appaloosa Horse Club is pleased to announce a continued and expanded “Appaloosa presence” at the Ohio Equine Affaire in Columbus OH, April 10-13, 2008 with Appaloosa breed displays, demonstrations, and an ApHC Town Hall meeting for Appaloosa discussion and feedback.

The ApHC hosts an Appaloosa information booth and stall in the Cashman Breed Pavilion, where visitors can meet a live Appaloosa horse, view video footage of Appaloosas and their people in action, talk to Appaloosa enthusiasts, and find information on ApHC programs and Appaloosa horses.

A Regional Club booth is situated next to the ApHC booth. More interaction with Appaloosa owners, information on local Appaloosa shows and events, Appaloosa horses for sale and Appaloosa stallions for service is available there.

Appaloosa owners from OH and the surrounding areas have their horses and farms represented in the Horse & Farm Exhibits barns. Several of these Appaloosa Ambassadors will take part in the Appaloosa breed demonstration Friday Aprill 11th at one pm to illustrate to the attending public why Appaloosas are the Breed of Choice. Appaloosas will also be featured in the Young Rider Pavilion on Saturday April 12th where youth can get to know the Appaloosa horse.

An ApHC Town Hall Meeting will be held Friday April 11th in the conference area at the Cashman Breed Pavilion, directly after the Appaloosa breed demonstration, with the ApHC President and area Director(s) on hand. These idea and solution generating meetings are being held across the country in response to the desire of members and ApHC Directors for more communication and response on the local level.
