It’s always good to have something to look forward to at this time of year.
It’s cold, the days are short, and three-day weekends are few and far between. You’ve got to keep your spirits up.
Luckily for horse lovers, there’s an exciting event coming at the end of February that’s sure to do the trick: the 17th annual Horse World Expo.
It’s the perfect opportunity to meet equestrians, network with industry professionals, shop, and enjoy expert horsemanship demonstrations. And with a variety of compelling horse trailer discounts on offer, it’s also the perfect time to chat with Blue Ridge Trailers about your travel or hauling needs.
