Friday Morning Crowds at East Expo Gate

From the Friday morning crowds waiting at the gates to the last person leaving the rodeo on Sunday afternoon, the MN Horse Expo wishes to thank those who attended the 34th Expo April 22-24th at the MN State Fairgrounds. We plan and arrange throughout the year to bring the vendors, clinicians and horses to the Expo grounds for you and it’s always gratifying to see the great turnout.  Many thanks to those who braved the downpours on Sunday to still come and enjoy what the Horse Expo had to offer.

To the breed people, the presenters and the vendors: you are the best. Thank you for bringing your horses, knowledge and products/ information to the Horse Expo to share. Each year we try to add variety to the line ups while keeping the familiar quality people have come to expect. We’ll continue to try to improve and add to all areas.

Next year the MN Horse Expo dates are April 28-30th - and it happens to mark our 35th anniversary. Planning has begun, excitement is high and we welcome your input. Please feel free to reach us through the survey here. Appreciate everyone’s interest in our state’s horse industry and thank all for making it possible to contribute resources raised at the Horse Expo to the Minnesota Horse Council to continue their yearly committee projects and goals.

Thank you!

Glen Eaton
MN Horse Expo President
