A Message from the GLBA President, Frann Beckel
September 3, 2018
"We had our final show of the season Labor Day weekend. Exhibitors came from near and far and
everyone seemed to have a great time. It is our hope to repeat a successful and fun show season again next year.
Thanks to all of the exhibitors for supporting our shows and thanks to all of the people who pitched in to help.
We are thankful to have such a great group of people and horses!"
