Local media are reporting that the Roanoke Valley Horse Show has been canceled after 43 years in Salem. WDBJ, Channel 7, reports that organizers cited lack of sponsors and donations for the June 15-20 show.
Just two weeks ago the Roanoke Valley Horse Show sent out the prize books for the show.
The organization has recently gone through leadership changes, which organizers say have contributed to the lack of funds.
