Mid-Atlantic Saddlebred Event

Mary and Evan Orr have announced an exciting, new program that will take place Thursday, February 21 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at their High Caliber Stables in Greensboro, NC. The Mid Atlantic Saddlebred Event will be open to the public and will be attended by equine enthusiasts from across the country and Canada.

Barns are invited to bring their show prospects for the new season or finished horses that are offered for sale to present to the audience that evening. Some of the barns that have already committed to participating are Mercer Springs Farm, West Wind Stables, Matt Shiflet Stables, Harrison Shiflet Stables, Suzy Shiflet, Burt Honaker, High Caliber, and many more.

John and Erin Fann’s EventMix will produce the evening and will co-sponsor the complimentary cocktails and hors d’oeuvres with High Caliber Stables. The Mid-Atlantic Saddlebred Event will kick-off the High Caliber Stables Adult Clinic, which will be held February 22 and 23.

“I don’t know what I’ve gotten myself into,” said Mary Orr, “however, we are really happy with the response and look forward to a great weekend. We feel this event will be a wonderful way to promote the barns and horses for sale in our region.”

For more information on how to attend and/or participate in the Mid-Atlantic Saddlebred Event please contact Mary or Evan Orr, (704) 500-6166 or email
