Perfect Stall Live!
Perfect Stall Live! is a lively group of small business owners whose products have been featured positively in Dr. Karen Hayes' books, lectures, and horse-care magazine articles. They've joined forces at horse-expo trade shows to show how their products combine to create Perfect Horsekeeping. Hayes has given them permission to use the trademarked "Perfect Stall" name but remains separate and independent from the businesses and does not accept payment from them. "It takes courage to conceive a new product and jump through the development, production, patenting and marketing hoops. I encourage people to do that, and reward them with my support if I think their products improve the lives of horses and horsekeepers." In addition to hands-on experience with the products Hayes has chosen for her Perfect Stall project, the PSL booths carry all three books in Hayes' Perfect Stall series.
