Frame Building Expo to Welcome Horse Owners

Horse Barns

Horse owners and other post-frame building customers will want to attend a convention in Nashville, Tenn. this March that's free for those who register before January 27. Every year, the National Frame Builders Association (NFBA) presents the NFBA Frame Building Expo, which features an extensive industry trade show and educational programming related to post-frame buildings (formerly known as "pole barns").

The 2006 Frame Building Expo will take place March 1-3 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville, Tenn. Special programming for horse owners, sponsored by EQUUS and Horse & Rider magazines, will be featured March 3. Bulding customers are invited to attend the expo on any or all days of the event for free. After January 26, a $10 late fee applies. Those who are involved in construction-related industries are ineligible for the free offer.

On March 3, building customers will enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast and horse-related programs. Dr. Eileen Wheeler will discuss systems and practices to keep the dust down in her session "Dust Control in Riding Arenas."

Also on March 3, equine architect Thomas Croce will present a special session called "Safe and Healthy Horse Barns." In addition to environmental conditions that affect animal comfort, builders and building owners should consider psychological and ergonomic factors as well. Croce's session will cover factors that affect horse safety and comfort, and provide practical tips to make horses and equestrians both happy. His combination of architectural expertise and working understanding of facility operations lends itself to designs that are unique, functional and comprehensive in planning and engineering.

Building customers who attend can peruse the many options available for horse barns and other post-frame buildings at the Expo's trade show. Expo exhibitors are largely building component suppliers who provide all the materials used for erecting barns, riding arenas, horse stalls, warehouses, garages, commercial buildings, residential accessory buildings and retail buildings.
