The Horsemen’s Corral is making every effort to be there for the equine community by continuing to publish club news, advertising and information during the Covid-19 pandemic. With the equine industry being pretty much at a standstill in May, we have decided to publish this month’s issue in digital format only.
Please understand that the equine industry is being hit very hard by shutdowns and social distancing requirements. Shows are not taking place, retailers with no online selling ability are closed, some services have been deemed non-essential and others just haven’t survived the revenue lost by not attending the industry trade shows that typically kick off the year. The uncertainty of when we will get back to business has everyone in a state of wait. Consequently, our decision to publish digital only this month allows time for clubs, advertisers, show committees, producers and organizers time to get back on their feet and plan for the future. It also decreases our expense of printing and mailing thus better positioning the Corral to be there when things get back to normal.
