Tampa Charity Show

Thanks to Chris Cassenti for this report on, and pictures from, the 75th Tampa Charity Show held March 4-8, 2008 at the Florida State Fairgrounds.

The Tampa Show was way up on entries according to Show Manager, Peter Fenton. They sold over 400 stalls and had trainers and exhibitors from all over!!! Jan Lukens attended with Saddlebreds & Friesians; Ronnie Graham came with Saddlebreds & ponies from KY; Jannie Giles brought Saddlebreds, Fresians & a Fell Pony from KY; and the Florida Trainers in all breeds supported the show with good numbers and quality horses.
