You will be surrounded by rich, fertile, black soil which with normal rainfall, provides an annual harvest of bounty.
The local planning team is getting very excited to host each of you and your families from across the United States. Many of the planners have been working together for the past 18 months with great anticipation for a huge successful event.
We consider this event to be a tremendous benefit to the Arthur - Arcola area with a plethora of family-oriented activities each day. The statement, “something for everyone” really fits the 2013 version of the Horse Progress Days. Each morning will begin with activities for the boys such as a pony pull. There will also be numerous activities for the girls and women who join us. There will be a playground and petting zoo available for the enjoyment of all children regardless of age. We will also provide numerous high-quality seminars as well as a timely shuttle service to and from the site to Arthur and Arcola. We encourage all visitors to please schedule time to visit and shop in Arthur and Arcola. Both of these great villages are less than 5 miles away from the event site and are strong supporters of Horse Progress Days 2013.
We will close out each day with a highly-regarded Breed Presentation. We look forward to seeing each of you in July of 2013.
