Why is Guthrie a great community to be a part of?

Guthrie is a lot like the NLBRA, small town values with a melting pot of awesome businesses that choose to be there...and they truly are genuine and care about their people

It's the hub of Guthrie, the networking is priceless. It's a very welcoming environment.

What was the last thing that made you smile?
A mom that called this morning asking for clarification on the Classic Equine Horse of the Year. We visited for a while and she told me how the NLBRA had been such a positive influence on her son and how excited they were to have made it to Nationals. That is the good stuff...the families and the kids.
