Reba Farm's Horse Exhibition

On October 11, 2014 at 1pm at the Appomattox Railroad Day Festival we are going to enjoy the beauty, grace and talent of horses. At 1pm on the Woodmen of the World baseball field (located behind Appomattox Gallery) we are going to have a 1 hour horse show. Reba Farms out of Bedford, Virginia is going to bring twelve different beautiful breeds of horses and their riders. For a dynamic 60 minute presentation you will watch as these horses jump, maneuver obstacles, ride in various formations and provide a special demonstration of rescued horses. There will also be a special salute to our country and our veterans. So come and watch this newly introduced horse show at the Railroad Day this year! Entry to this event is free of charge. This event is sponsored by Liberty Baptist Church.
