The 2016 Minnesota Horse Expo features over 700
booth spaces filled with vendors offering a huge variety of product and
information for those who own or are interested in horses. You will find
these vendors in the Coliseum, the Cattle Barn, the Poultry/Sheep Barn, the CHS
Miracle of Birth Building, the Dairy Building and along Judson Avenue and

The seven standard competitions at a rodeo are Saddle Bronc Riding, Bareback Riding, Bull Riding, Tie Down Roping, Team Roping and Barrel Racing. The first three events - Saddle Bronc Riding, Bareback Riding and Bull Riding - are considered 'roughstock' events. The cowboy's score is equally dependent on not only his performance, but also the animal's performance. The other competitions are timed events, which means the cowboy (or cowgirl for barrel racing) compete against the clock, as well as each other. See 'em all at the Minnesota Horse Expo rodeos!

Cavallo Equestrian Arts Performances Cancelled It
is with regret that the Minnesota Horse Expo announces that Cavallo
Equestrian Arts will not be bringing their tent show to the 2016 Expo. Due to a recent transport accident which damaged their big top
tent and equipment, Cavallo Equestrian Arts feel they have no choice but
to cancel. We will miss having this talented troupe of performers at
the 2016 Minnesota Horse Expo and wish them success in rebuilding.
Come for the horses, vendors, clinicians and rodeos, then stay for the country music!
