This ENTIRE month, we are set up at the All American Quarter Horse Congress.  In addition to our rodeo clients, we also have a large customer base in the world of horse showing! The All American Quarter Horse Congress is the world’s largest single-breed horse show, with 24,500 entries in 2017. It’s held at the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus, the State capital; the show attracts 650,000 people, and generates $382 million in the central Ohio economy. The All American Quarter Horse Congress is hosted by the Ohio Quarter Horse Association, which is a state affiliate of the American Quarter Horse Association. Their mission is to protect and promote the Quarter Horse and the interests of owners, breeders, exhibitors and enthusiasts. With as important as the Quarter horse is in American history, we love being able to be part of such an amazing show. From hunter jumpers to reining, cowboy mounted shooting to western pleasure, the diversity of this breed is incredible.  We will pack up the #RhinestoneLipglossRig and leave here on October 30, then its re-building inventory like crazy to drive nearly three days west to NFR!!  Sometimes this travel schedule (about 70,000 miles a year, not including flights) gets a little hectic, but honestly I dont know that I would have it any other way! Getting to meet so many of our amazing clients in person makes it absolutely worth it! One of the best investments we have made recently is our Toy Hauler- the back, where most people put their toys, is where my mobile studio is set up so I can continue to create while on the road! Last year my husband (he’s a big guy, about 6’5 and 290lbs!) and I traveled nearly 67,000 miles in a 12 foot short wall three horse slant with NO SLIDES…. So this is quite the upgrade! We cant wait to see everyone here at the Congress, and are even more excited for another year in Vegas!
