Harness Horses Book Launch Barn Party

A young reader celebrates Harness Horses, Bucking Broncos & Pit Ponies by Jeff Crosby and Shelley Ann Jackson at the book launch.

Even the outside is wonderful, with seats and benches in the shade of the tall, mature trees. Listen to the birds chirping, the breeze rustle the leaves and keep your eye out for the family of deer that calls this area home.

Authors Jeff Crosby and Shelley Ann Jackson held the launch of their book Harness Horses, Bucking Broncos & Pit Ponies at The Writing Barn. Young readers enjoyed reading the book, meeting the writers and playing with the mini-horses that were in pens outside The Barn for the day.

But The Barn also has been the host of birthday parties, community dinners and bridal showers, giving friends a place to relax, have fun and celebrate creativity.
