Eastern States Exposition President and CEO said the new office in the C Barn will help keep the Coliseum a popular venue for horse shows. "It's facilities like this that help to assure that exhibitors and promoters would be attracted to the Eastern States in the future," Cassidy said.

After the ribbon cutting yesterday, the United Professional Horseman's Association show commenced. This is the first horse show at the fairgrounds this season.

We were priviledged to work on the new office. We love horses and we love building, so it was only natural that we do our part to help the Eastern States Exposition further their endeavors, as ESE's work is so valuable to the horse community at large.
