AERC Convention in Reno, Nevada

AERCThe AERC convention is coming up and is on Friday, March 8 and Saturday, March 9, 2013 at the Grand Sierra Resort in Reno, Nevada.  The convention is where the AERC gives out it’s regional and national ride awards to riders.  There is also a tradeshow (that is free to attend!), and on both days there are several speakers lined up to talk on various topics.

Since I had to miss the ride last weekend, I decided to clean out my tack room and will be bringing a LOT of used tack to sell at the tack sale.  I have everything from biothane tack, girths, saddle pads, saddle packs, hoof boots, bits, lead ropes, reins, blankets, sheets and many other things.   Everything is in good shape, and clean so I hope those that are local or that were already planning to attend can come and do some shopping, both at the used tack sale but also at the trade show where there are going to be dozens and dozens of vendors.

I had to miss the ride last weekend, because my truck broke down — while hauling to the ride.  Fortunately I had not gone very far and was able to get off of the highway safely.  The horses are both okay, which is the most important thing.

I hope to see many of you in Reno!  ~Karen
