By Jan Westmark I love the Budweiser Clydesdales – especially their amazing Superbowl commercials. One thing that’s just a little better then the “you-need-a-Kleenex” Budweiser Clydesdales commercials, however, is seeing them in person! If you want to see the Budweiser Clydesdales in person and you live or are visiting the Western North Carolina mountains on April 29th, then you are in luck! The world-famous hitch will appear in the Landrum Parade on April 29th just a few days before the Blockhouse Steeplechase that takes place in Tryon, North Carolina

By Jan Westmark-Allan It’s easy for me to remember where I was on 9/11 – the barn. We heard the news that we were being attacked and we gathered around a small TV in the tack room and watched, overwhelmed with sadness and fear. While it is a day that brings back so many memories, each year since that terrible day I have felt a sense of honor and pride just to be able to remember that day and say something as simple as “Never Forget.” While I will Never Forget 9/11, I will also Never Forget the feelings I had as a child when I saw the Budweiser Clydesdales – to sum it up the word was “awe.” I had a pony at the time, but these horses were huge, breathtaking, beautiful, regal and memorable.
