Feria was a huge success again, many of the biggest PRE Breeders across the nation participated in the first of two shows in 2014. Members of USPRE were invited to our VIP Lounge to watch the show and spend some time with our staff. We offered a Wine and Cheese Reception on Friday and a dinner buffet on Saturday before the extravaganza.
During the entire weekend members and breeders were invited to join us at our booth to ask studbook related questions and receive information on pending paperwork or services. Memberships and New Breeder Codes were processed from our booth on site, TRC and Revision questions and information was given to everyone by New Director of Operations Sally Rodriguez and Director of Communications Ricardo Nigaglioni.
On Sunday, the Born in America Awards were presented during the awards ceremony and the winners for 2014 were:
