Attention Dog Owners! Canine Influenza has
been Confirmed in North Carolina
We love dogs in Blowing Rock and want to
keep them safe & well. Dogs are at the highest risk of contracting the
virus at locations where the animals are in close quarters. A sick dog
transmits the virus to another dog through saliva, coughing and
sneezing, contaminated objects such as food and water bowls, toys and by
people moving between infected and uninfected dogs.
The Blowing Rock show is
widely recognized as the oldest continuous horse show in America. The show
has been held for 94 consecutive summers and on the same plot of ground
Saddlebred Show: June 8 - 11

vendors and an exciting array of merchandise booths will be on hand to
