Augusta, NJMarch 25, 2002The Garden State Horse Show, presented by the Junior Essex Troop, Inc., is pleased to have Kistler Buildings on board for another year of sponsorship. Kistler is sponsoring a beautifully painted Kistler Fence in the Grand Prix Ring, and is also proudly sponsoring the exhibitors party.
The Garden State Horse Show runs May 1-5 from 8:00 a.m. until about 5:00 p.m. each day at the Sussex County Fairgrounds in Augusta, NJ and features five rings of exciting equestrian competition. The weeks competition is highlighted by the $50,000 Garden State Grand Prix, a member event of the U.S. Grand Prix League, on Saturday, May 4.
Kistler Buildings and the Garden State Horse Show are a natural combination, as Kistler is a leader in quality post frame construction and has been specializing in equestrian facilities, from state of the art equestrian facilities to moderate provincial barns, for the past 19 years.
Kistler barns are custom designed with sensitivity to aesthetic appeal as well as function. A state-of-the-art bar and grill system for stalls and protective anti-chew detailing has been developed by Kistler for stall areas. Kistler will also design and manufacture stall components which can be integrated into an existing design.
Customization is the essence of Kistler Buildings, and they can tailor-build the design of anyone's choice. A sample of Kistler construction can be seen on the grounds of The Garden State Horse Show in the Country Fair boutique area.
Whether you need an ordinary or extraordinary design, you want Kistler Buildings. If youre looking for an extraordinary horse show, you want Garden State.
