2012 Utah Horse Expo

 

February 2012 issue

 

      The 2012 Utah Horse Expo will be held March 911, 2012, at the Salt Lake County Equestrian Park Event Center in South Jordan , UT. This exciting family event will offer a Stallion Preview, a Breed Showcase, educational seminars, equine demonstrations, and a large trade show.

      A highlight of the weekend is the 4th Annual Utah Trainers Challenge, with a $5,000 cash prize and $7,500 in awards. Four trainers were selected in a competition held January 14, each having received an untrained horse to work with. The trainers have 60 days before the Expo to teach their horses a range of skills from basic ground manners to Western performance events such as reining, and ranch and cattle work.

      The trainers will be asked to ride their horses at the Expo, and will be judged not only by three independent judges, but by Expo visitors, who will vote on which horse they perceive as the best trained.

      Other weekend highlights include NFR Champions and Miss Rodeo Utah signing autographs, farrier clinics, veterinarian lectures, demonstrations by local youth vaulting teams; driving demonstrations; Friesians and Gypsy Vanner horses; draft horses in harness; costumed Arabian riders; costumed Renaissance riders; and roping and cowdog demonstrations.

      Proceeds from the event benefit 4-H, Utah High School Rodeo and Miss Rodeo Utah . For more information about the Utah Horse Expo, call 801-627-6471, 801-825-6973; or visit www.utahhorsecouncil.com/expo.htm.
