Economy Hits Eastern Iowa Horse Shows

  • Photo
CEDAR RAPIDS - The nation's sinking economy has found its way to horse shows, of all places. This weekend's American Paint Horse Association Show at the Kirkwood Equestrian Center in Cedar Rapids had a smaller turnout than usual.

Participants say it costs them thousands of dollars make the trip and care for their horses. While smaller shows are struggling, this one brought people from across the nation, just looking for a way to multi-task a hobby with a way to escape.

Organizer Terry Schroeder says, "This may be a vacation. Instead of taking one two-week-long vacation, they take days here and there. They do it as a family. What better way to know where your kids are."

Schroeder says one of the group's biggest events comes at the end of this month, when its hope to top the regular 200 riders. She says that normally brings in more than a million dollars for area businesses.
