RoanWorld_web-10The first ever American Roan Horse Association World Show was held June 21-23rd in Cloverdale, Indiana. With competitors from across the country competition was stiff for the coveted crystal World Championship trophy.

“By all accounts (show management, NSBA officers who were present for their own show, the vendors, and our members) it was a resounding success” shared Lori Watkins of the ARHA. 

“The awards were really outstanding! Everybody got “something” to take home whether it was a medallion, or trophy with a ribbon, or a goody bag full of fantastic items including your generous certificates from Show Horse Today”

Lori continued “we also had an interesting gift box from a company called “High Point Ready” that has a monthly mail out service with adorable boxes filled with all kinds of horsey items. The owner came to the show for the first few days and it turns out she lives just 20 minutes from us! Another awesome item was from a friend of mine who makes earrings from bullet caps. These were part of the goody bag given to the Reserve World Champions’.”

“This was a show managed by Greg Wheat.” explained Watkins. “He was SO good to us and had lots of helpful staff to guide us through the process.”

In addition to singing the praise of show managment Watkins wanted to point out how amazing the show photographer was as well.  “Kelsey and her crew from Norfleet Photography said this was the best show they had been to and how well everything had been done.
