PA Horse World Expo February 2010

So what is there to do on a cold winter day in Harrisburg, Pa in February if you love everything horses? Visit the Pennsylvania Horse World Expo of course! 

On February 23rd two brave souls from Hodges Badge ventured out into the New England weather to head south for a few days. Ok, so it wasn’t really south, south –  it was PA and the weather wasn’t any really warmer but it was an adventure none the less.  Actually the weather was on the bad side in Harrisburg but that didn’t stop the true horse lovers from attending the 8th Annual Pennsylvania Horse World Expo.

Hodges was there to mingle and see what was new in the horse community of Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington and other surrounding cities. Of course we were there to show everyone what was new with us too. We have a new Equestrian Catalog out filled with NEW products – I’m most excited about the new line of trophies but that’s a topic for another day. 

Now back to the show.Rather than just tell you about the show I wanted to show you… You could test products.

Shop for souvenirs or a great gift.

Pony purses anyone? Too cute!

 Shop for new trailer. 

Attend a great clinic or seminar.

My favorite picture though, shows just how creative one can be…can you tell who’s invited to dinner?

Horse World Expo in Maryland

The Horse World Expo in Maryland was a great show this year. It’s been going strong for 13 years now. There were over 100 seminars, lectures and demonstrations, daily exhibitions and a parade of breeds, not to mention shopping, shopping and more shopping.

Attendance was a little down from past years but it’s hard to tell if it was because of the economy or the fact that it was the weekend before the historical presidential inauguration and everyone had other plans. We had the chance to meet with our customers face to face and show them some new products. We got some great feedback on our new silver-plated trays, equestrian plaques and trophies. They loved the fact that they could get silver trays for only $10.

The same show management puts on an expo in Pennsylvania this year too. Check it out>> We won’t be able to make this one but we’re putting it on the schedule for next year. It sounds like another great show for the “Horse World”.
