2019 Horse Progress Days on a hot, humid weekend in Arthur, Illinois.
There was a huge crowd at the event. ABA Members who attended included Carrey & Shelly Burnett, Allan Hirshberger, Mike Jordan, Jason & Katrina Julian, Dave & Cindy Mires, Kim & Joe Ott, Heather & Jerry Senger and Susan Zenker.
American Brabant horses were well represented. Susan Zenker brought her 2 geldings Finn and Fergus. They were busy transporting people from the parking area to the gate and showing in the Parade of Breeds.
Jason Julian brought his stallion, Conan, a mare, Hannah and their 3 month old offspring Calli. Jason used his horses to showcase horse-drawn equipment and when the parking turned muddy, Hannah and Conan pulled stuck vehicles free..
There was lots of interest shown at the ABA's booth with Heather and Jerry Senger and Cindy Mires manning the booth for the majority of the event.
