About the Event Calendar

The Event Calendar is provided as a free service to all clients and followers of the Horse Connection Center. It is designed to provide event and activity information which can be viewed by the public on the website and on Facebook as the information is shared. Please send your flyer in a PDF or jpeg format with any additional pertinent information to horseconnectioncenter@gmail.com.

Once your information is entered it will be disbursed in several ways. 1. It will appear on the actual Event Calendar. 2. It will appear on the website Home page approximately 1 week prior to the event. 3. It will be shared to Facebook the Monday before the event takes place. At any time your listing can be shared to any of the social media networks.

Some things to keep in mind when you post your event. 1. Make sure your information regarding dates, location, and contact information is correct. 2. Try to include a piece of media that will project the culture of your event. If you do not have one, please contact me. I have a library of photos that may work for you.

Thank you for using the Horse Connection Center Event Calendar.

    YOur site to serve the horse community is always appreciated. I have a comment that is really a question. Why are the supplemental displays of information on home page and facebook made within the week of the event? That notice is only influential to people with no plans- a small percentage. Most active horse people are marking their calendars well ahead. If they didn’t see the calendar far ahead, the information is not going to get more participants to the event a week away.. Not many horse owners are flexible enough to prepare and enter a show or a ride in less than a week or budget for it. I think that would apply to dogs and other activities too. Think about it. This is just for the editor or manager. Thanks. Pat

      Hi Pat,

      Thank you for taking the time to ask your question. The home page calendar display only provides activity within the current month, but if you look above the home page calendar you will see a line that indicates “click for full Event Calendar”. Also the home page menu bar contains the full Event Calendar. Both of them will take you to a more extensive calendar that goes out about one year.

      I post activities that have been sent to me by organizers. They typically send me a flyer, poster and sometimes entry forms. Whenever an activity is posted to the Event Calendar I share the information the same day it has been posted. I then share it again when it appears on the home page calendar. All Event Calendar postings are free. I am happy to post for organizers or they can input themselves. I’d be happy to have canine as well as equine activities posted, but I need organizers to send me the information. If you are aware of any groups or organizations holding activities, please feel free to have them contact me so that we can get the information on the calendar. I will begin sending out a quarterly newsletter at the end of September. I am hoping that it will be a way for more people to be aware of the services being provided by Horse Connection Center, many that are free to everyone.

      Thanks again for your input. I appreciate you taking the time.
