Horse show

TO THE EDITOR: You’ve come, and we’re delighted.

This is the time of year when as a community and particularly as a business community, we should reflect upon how fortunate we are to have one of the premiere horse shows in the world coming to our area.

The first and third weeks of the show (starting June 24 and July 8) would be a relatively slow and difficult weeks without the horse show.

Even the second week with July 4th could very well be less than optimum.

The presence of the horse show pretty much guarantees that all three of these weeks will be economically productive for Lake Placid/North Elba. This is absolutely the most important event we host all year.

In return for this good fortune (especially in this year of high and escalating costs), as a community, we should sincerely open our arms and welcome all the participants (workers, trainers, grooms, exhibitors, riders) and make each and every one of the them individually feel as if we consider them to be the most important person in the world, or as Ruth Newburry put it back in the Seventies, “You’ve come, and we’re delighted.”

To all the participants in this year’s horse show, thank you for being here.
