July 14, 2017 

I hope this note finds all well with everyone.

I am writing to inform you that the August 2017 Charlotte International Equestrian Market has been cancelled effectively immediately.

We have tried everything that we can think of to make this event a success.  Our main problem was the fact that the larger exhibiting companies would not commit their support and participation.  We started off pretty good last February.  The attendance from both the exhibitor side and the retailer side was fair but not acceptable.  We were repeatedly told that companies were waiting to the see the level of participation from the larger companies before they would commit to future markets.

That participation, for one reason or another, has just never materialized for the August event.

Therefore, we have determined that it is not prudent to continue with this market if we are unable grow it from one show to the next.

Your support has been extremely appreciated by both myself and Ginger.
