Welcome to the westernmost side of the Horse Progress Days hoof print. Upon arrival you will find yourself surrounded by black, rich, fertile, flat, soil which, when mixed with normal amounts of rainfall, produces a bountiful annual harvest.
Your local planning team is very excited to host each of you, your family, and friends from across the United States and beyond. We extend a very special welcome to our international guests, and hope that you truly enjoy your visit to the Arthur Illinois area and our flat countryside. Our planning team has been working hard for the past eighteen months with great anticipation for a very successful Horse Progress Days.
We consider this event to be a tremendous benefit to the Arthur area. There is a plethora of family oriented activities offered each day. You will find that the statement “something for everyone” fits very well with the 2019 event. Each day will begin with children’s activities, including the always popular children’s pony express. All children, boys and girls, will enjoy the playground area and petting zoo planned for them. Women, too, will enjoy and truly appreciate activities that are planned especially for their specific interests.
Many high quality seminars are being planned. And then, of course, there are the field demonstrations of newly manufactured horse farming equipment, the hallmark of Horse Progress Days. As usual, everyone is looking forward to new innovations that might be represented in the battery of equipment that will show up at Horse Progress Days 2019. Each day will close with a great breed presentation of horses.
We look forward to meeting you and hosting you as you arrive in beautiful
