The Virginia-North Carolina Horse Festival will be held March 5, 2016 at the Olde Dominion Agriculture Complex in Chatham, Virginia, which is located at 19783 US Hwy 29 South, Chatham, VA 24531. Festival hours are 10am-3pm. There are lots of great events planned throughout the day including a parade of breeds, a barrel and poles demonstration and a mounted shooting demonstration. There will also be static demonstrations running throughout the day related to horse care including bits and biting, nutrition and chiropractic care. There will be a Kid’s Area with lots of fun activities for the little ones. Dealers and vendors will be present so it will be a great time to check out horse related products. Food vendors will also be on-site. All are invited to come learn more about horses, whether you currently own one, are thinking about getting a horse or just think they’re great animals. The event is being planned and organized by the SouthEastern Farriers & Horseowners Association (SEFHA), Averett University and several Cooperative Extension offices in both North Carolina and Virginia. Major sponsors at this time include Southern States and Virginia Horse Industry Board. This is a free event for the public so come out and enjoy some horse related activities. Please note that pets are not allowed, and there is no ATM on-site. For more information, call Kim Woods, Person County Cooperative Extension, at 336-599-1195.
