It was just made known to me that the Benton County commissioners terminated their lease with Sun Downs Training Center at the fairgrounds.
For those of you who want to keep the horse industry alive, contact the commissioners and let them know how you feel about it and that you will reflect your thoughts at election time about their decision.
The horse industry has many events for everyone and moves the economy through employment, local farmers, businesses and professional services. It also provides many youth activities.
The facility is professionally managed, insured beyond what is required and has an A-plus rating of safety standards. Keep Sundowns Training Center open for horse events at least 10 months of the year!
