WEST SPRINGFIELD, MA, September 21, 2022 – Do chicken mansions really exist? Are there horses who thrive in swampy conditions (and still manage to have great feet)? Can equine-assisted therapy really help you cope with trauma? If you’ve listened to the most recent episode of the official Equine Affaire podcast, you’d already know the answers to these questions – and more!

This month, Equine Affaire’s blended episode of Horses in the Morning on the Horse Radio Network features interviews with three key participants of the upcoming 2022 Equine Affaire in Massachusetts. Sponsored by Horizon Structures, the September episode gives listeners a glimpse of some special guests that will appear in the Breed Pavilion, the trade show, and in A Horse for Heroes, a special event feature taking place on Veterans Day. This fall’s Equine Affaire will take place on November 10-13, 2022, at the Eastern States Exposition in West Springfield, Massachusetts.

“In this episode, we really wanted to highlight the diversity of everything we have to offer at our event,” said Allison Rehnborg, who co-hosts the show with Glenn Hebert of the Horse Radio Network. “That’s why this month’s guests all represent several different parts of the expo.”

The episode’s first interview is with Pamela Landskroener, owner of Lazy Dog Acres in Maryland. A member of the Carolina Marsh Tacky Association, Landskroener breeds, trains, shows, and sells Marsh Tackies. This fall, she’ll be bringing two of her horses to exhibit in the Breed Pavilion at Equine Affaire and help spread awareness about the breed, which is listed as critically endangered and worthy of further study on the Equus Survival Trust’s 2022 Equine Global Conservation List.

Next, Jill Siragusa – chief marketing officer for Horizon Structures – called in to catch up with Glenn and Allison and share about how horse owners can order custom structures for their farm or home from the company. Horizon Structures is a proud sponsor of Equine Affaire as well as the title sponsor of this month’s episode. Based out of Atglen, Pa., Horizon Structures sells high quality prefabricated structures made by the Amish in the United States. Whether you’re in the market for horse barns, dog kennels, outdoor living spaces, chicken coops (yes, including chicken mansions!), kids’ playsets, or greenhouses, Horizon Structures and their crews can design, build, deliver, and assemble the structure of your dreams.

The third segment of the show featured a special interview with Tara Mahoney, CEO, and Ryan Casavant, COO, of the Equine Immersion Project. The Equine Immersion Project’s mission is to support service members and their families through the power of horses by offering equine-assisted therapies and activities. Through these activities, participants can learn coping strategies, interpersonal skills, mindfulness, leadership skills, empathy, and more. This fall, the EIP is bringing its services to Equine Affaire to minister to veterans, military, and first responders with an interactive activity on Friday, November 11 – Veterans Day. Mahoney will also be presenting demonstrations about how horses can help first responders and military.
