I attended the AQHA Convention in New Orleans with Becki, our VP of Western/Business Development. This was our first time to New Orleans so our fellow AQHA Corporate Partners, Team SmartPak Riders and other industry professionals showed us the sights. The convention is always such a great place to catch up, meet new people, and celebrate the American Quarter Horse. Looking forward to Fort Worth in 2015!
Clinton Anderson Walkabout Tour
Fellow SmartPaker Veronica and I spent the third weekend in March in Lufkin, TX, at a recent Walkabout Tour with Clinton Anderson. While at the event, in addition to hanging out with some horse-loving Texans, I discovered the wonders of frozen pickle juice, an apparent staple at sports events. I had my first brush with true humidity on Saturday, which was then followed by freezing temperatures on Sunday, so we switched out our ice water for hot chocolate (which was DELICOUS). I’ve always heard everything is bigger in Texas, but after seeing the monster-sized mosquitoes flying around, I’m a believer. The Walkabout Tours with Clinton are always fun and educational, and our trip to Lufkin was no exception. We had some great conversations with our customers and made a bunch of new friends along the way. I can’t wait to attend my next Tour!
This March, I traveled to the beautiful state of Texas for the Clinton Anderson Walkabout Tour. It was my first time at the Tour, and it was so incredibly fun! Everyone was so sweet, excited to learn new techniques for their horses, and eager to try SmartPaks or new supplements to help keep their horses happy and healthy. Plus, the warmer weather was a huge bonus!
In March, I went to Texas with the Marketing team to attend a Clinton Anderson Walkabout Tour. It was my first Tour and was very enlightening. Clinton certainly does have some very dedicated fans! We got to spend lots of time talking to our customers and getting to know them better. We also got to eat some good Texas barbecue. What’s better than that?!
