The Saskatchewan Equine Expo, to be held February 15-17, 2013 in Saskatoon will include new and exciting events, skilled participants in the Trainers Challenge, and an expanded trade show.
2013 will introduce Canada’s Ultimate Cow Horse Competition. This three-day competition will include reined work, herd work, fence work and will be one of the features of the two evening Equine Extravaganzas. Participants will be competing for prizes, cash, and the championship title.
Dale Clearwater from Hanley, Sask. will return to defend his 2012 Trainer Challenge title and will compete against Clint Christiansen from Bracken, Sask., and one other to be announced. Horses will again be provided by John & Bernice King of Diamond K Ranch at Corning, Sask.
Educational seminars will be presented by the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in the Information Theatre located in the trade show complex. Another new program for 2013 will be scheduled, guided tours of the new Equine Centre at the WCVM. Registration will be limited and participants will be required to pre-register for the tours.
Due to the overwhelming response from trade show exhibitors, another 17,000 sq. ft. of display space has been added to allow for larger indoor displays as well as extra food and beverage areas and a vendor lounge. An extra day has been added so the show will now be open Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Due to the overwhelming response in 2012, the Equine Extravaganza program will be now be featured on both Friday and Saturday evenings and will include a Parade of Breeds; demonstrations from feature clinicians; and many other attractions that will celebrate the diversity of the equine industry in Saskatchewan.
