The Portuguese Bend National Horse Show at the Ernie Howlett Park drew a large crowd over the weekend of September 9 through September 12. Two  rings offered a wide variety of classes, including three Medal Finals events. Guests enjoyed a hometown atmosphere where there was a variety of good, stocked boutiques for shopping and a whimsical children’s area with games, face painting, and pony rides. The “Big Tent Tables” and sponsor tent was catered by the Original Red Onion.
