Coming straight off a great week at Rolex, we’re now headed to Jersey Fresh to support HQ Riders Buck Davidson and Caroline Martin as they take on the cross country course tomorrow. Here’s to hoping the weather holds up, and all the riders do well. The course is beautiful, and the Horse Quencher team will be out there taking pictures and cheering on the riders. We’re also sponsoring a jump so come find us at fence 14B (on the 2* course) / fence 20B (on the 3* course). We’d love to hear from you on how you use Horse Quencher, so stop by and say hi!
And in case you didn’t know, Horse Quencher is actually based out of New Jersey. Both our owner/founder and our digital marketer call the Garden State home, so we’re doubly excited to be sponsoring a jump and getting to see the riders tackle cross country in our home state. There’s a lot more to New Jersey than the Turnpike and Parkway, by the way. Our state animal is also the horse, officially stated as “Equus caballus, so designated in Chapter 173 of the Laws of 1977. Governor Brendan T. Byrne signed the law August 14, 1977, while attending the farm and horse show at Augusta, Sussex County.” We’ve been told that we have more horses per square mile than any other state in the nation. And we bet you didn’t know that we even have an official dance – the square dance! Yup, we’re more country than you may think. We’re also known for blueberries (our state fruit) and honeybees (just ask Nancy of Horse Quencher and she will tell you!). No, our state insect is not the mosquito…very funny. The honeybees not only make great honey, but are wonderful for our environment as well. Find out more interesting NJ facts here: http://www.state.nj.us/nj/about/facts/.
So there you have it, more about the great state of New Jersey, home of Horse Quencher, and the Jersey Fresh International Event. We hope to see you on course tomorrow!
