The event again took place at beautiful Chatt Hills (Bouckaert Farms) in Fairburn, GA August8-25 th . “We were extremely pleased with this year’s show”, said show organizer JP Godard. “We were sold out again and it always a pleasure putting on an event at such an incredible facility”. The facility is an exhibitor favorite that boasts an over 8000 acre equestrian paradise filled with established pastures, lakes, and woodlands with ample room to ride all located along the Chattahoochee River. The footing and stabling are both exceptional and the schedule allots for early days so exhibitors can enjoy the nearby lake, Six Flags, or the hustle and bustle of nearby downtown Atlanta which is only minutes away.
