2019 Minnesota Horse Expo

Expo Changes and Grows

The first ever Pre-Expo clinic along with the first ever use of the Swine Barn for vendor booths and the return of the free horse rides made the 2019 Minnesota Horse Expo unique. Twelve riders and some 117 auditors spent all day Thursday with Warwick Schiller at the Pre-Expo clinic. Hundreds of children and adults enjoyed a free horse, pony and/or wagon ride during Expo. This 38th rendition of the Horse Council owned Expo also featured three PRCA Rodeo performances - Saturday night sold out - and a very successful Minnesota Youth Horse Association run consignment sale. The hunter/jumper course for kids designed by Wild Rose Stables was a hit! Hundreds of volunteers took advantage of the new online sign-up and helped out all over Expo – from the gates handing out free program books to the authentic Expo logo merchandise booth to driving the ‘people mover’ for those needing a ride from one end of Expo to the other.  Clinicians Julie Goodnight, Barbra Schulte, Warwick Schiller, Jim Masterson, Carrie Brandt, Laura Benson, Robert Eversole, and all the veterinarians, educators and horse group spokespeople contributed to the learning going on all weekend in Compeer Arena, the Coliseum, the DNR Building and the Swine Barn ring. The Commanding General’s Mounted Color Guard, Lockstep Riding Company and the Northern Lights Versatility Ranch Horse Association provided color, excitement, skill and speed during their presentations. Over forty breed representatives participated in the Parade of Breeds, stallion presentations and breed demonstrations. And the band, Roadhouse 6, played on as the post-rodeo crowd kept Expo going until 10:30 Friday and Saturday night. We thank all who helped with or came to Expo!

The 39th Minnesota Horse Expo will go on April 24-26.  Please plan on coming and tell your horse friends! 
Better yet, bring them along.
