Letter: New fairgrounds lease has potential to benefit horse community

February 19, 2013 

I found it interesting but not surprising that the Benton County Fair Board is leasing the horse facilities at the Benton County Fairgrounds. This lease could be great or horrible, depending on the attitudes of both parties.

If both parties truly have the best interests of the people in our community in mind, this will go great. Time will tell. As a local horse trainer, I hope with the creativity of Lori Lancaster and company, the fair, rodeo, horse racing, barrel racing, playdays, etc., will be occupying the facility around the clock at an affordable rate. If the $1,600 per month lease payment includes the power, this will be an awesome lease to have. Good luck to the new lease holders; we can't wait to get in there and help make things happen!
