Learn what’s new – and save BIG, too, at the 2010 Expo!

From Horsetrader sales staff - May 20th, 2010 - Ingate Column

The Western States Horse Expo arrives at the Cal Expo in Sacramento June 11-13, and our next issue (June 3) will be in demand there! This will be our 12th straight year of sponsorship the Expo, and this year we’ve got some great new things going – bringing “buyers and sellers together.” We think both readers and advertisers will be winners! Our “Expo Shopper’s Guide” will be in print AND online (www.horsetrader.com) for everyone to read through and find from the vendors themselves what their hot, new items are. Plus, we’re offering vendors the chance to add a coupon to (in print AND online)their Shopper Guide listing. On top of it all, we’ll be sending to our email recipients a link so they don’t miss this special info! Our June 3 issue is a “don’t miss” issue – one of our most popular of the year. For more info on advertising, call Lori today (760-546-1184) or email to lori.wilson@horsertader.com. Deadline is Monday, May 24!

Horse camps are on a lot of minds these days – the minds of little ones AND their parents! Be sure to see the Horsetrader’s list of camps and vacation in this issue!

Congratulations to Liz Farquhar and Jerry Clements! Liz, the secretary for the California Reining Horse Association, married her longtime friend Jerry on May 2 in Mariposa. The ceremony took place at his parents’ bed-and-breakfast, the Restful Nest on Sunday. Jerry is a lineman for Edison and helps Liz with all the horse functions — and he’s and a great supporter of her barrel racing. A Horsetrader toast to your happiness!
