Northern Colorado Back Country Horse Association at the Horse Fair

NCBCH was represented at the first annual Boulder County Horsemen’s Association Horse Fair on Sunday, April 21, 2013, from noon to 6 PM. Al Ohms, JoAnne Wortman, and Patti Jensen worked the booth shared with Front Range Backcountry Horsemen, staffed by Kitty Blandt . The Fair was held at Boulder County Fairgrounds in one of the indoor exhibition buildings.

Thirty one vendors displayed their products and services, which included artwork, boarding stables and dude ranches, horse-related products and services, and nonprofit service
organizations. The Easy Rider Horse Show, as well as three scheduled seminars, served to draw attendance from the local community. The seminars covered horse buying, hay selection and supplementation, and emergency planning and evacuation.

NCBCH’s display included a slideshow of our work and events, handouts, signage, and a saddle with saddlebags, cantle bag, and canteen. We projected our slide show on the wall, which gained lots of attention and comments. Our handouts included old copies of Backcountry Horsemen of America newsletters.

NCBCH’s presence alone served to gain important exposure for our chapter. As an added bonus, five new members were recruited, and four others requested additional information. For a small, local event, this turned out to be quite successful.

  1. Hi There Boulder County Horse Association,
    Speaking of which, I love this site, you can really see how much time you put into your posts. I’m a blogger too, and I know how difficult it can be to make time for writing sometimes. Bookmarked and will share. Keep it up!
