The Show Manager Pronounces it Good

National Appaloosa ShowThis is my last post from the National Appaloosa Show. I’d like to thank the ApHC for having me out once again and hope to see you for the World Show.

Before I left I spoke to Show Manager, Keri LeForce. She’s seems to be the “lady who knows it all.” If Keri doesn’t know the answer, no one does. She says the show has been going really well and that the facility people are very responsive. To get ready for the new location she’s been on the site at least 5 times before the show. It gave her a chance to see how other shows used the facility for one thing.

I had heard a number of people mention how good the security is and she echoed that. Prior to the show she went through a security schedule with the staff here so that it’s as good as other venues. The feedback she’s been getting seems very positive. She says the theme of the comments she’s been hearing is, “We didn’t expect it to be this nice.”

One of the things that’s nice about this facility she says is that there’s so much parking that people can often park next to their barn. The site also has lots of hookups for anyone attending with a live-in trailer too.

    I too was surprised by the facility, we came from central Florida to watch the show and meet new folks. Had a wonderful time and met some interesting characters. Having been my first App. show, I was impressed. I am a long time QH exhibitor, and now will be listing my stallion with the APHC for breeding. THanks to everyone in Miss. and the owners/exhibitors who welcomed us with open arms. Kimberly Clark, Victoria Cooper(Equestrian Style Magazine)

    I want to thank all of the Mississippi folks for their outstanding hospitality during the Youth World/National show. Everyone I had contact with was gracious, cordial, helpful and welcoming…. whether on the grounds or off the grounds. If you missed the Wednesday fish fry hosted by the Mississippi folks (with the outstanding blues band), you missed great food and great music. This was free to all exhibitors.
