Big Wyoming Horse Expo

 

April 2012 issue

 

       The 3rd Annual Big Wyoming Horse Expo is set for April 20–22, 2012, at the Wyoming State Fair Indoor Equestrian Center in Douglas , Wyoming . The three-day event is targeted at horse owners and lovers, and welcomes all breeds and all disciplines. Admission is free to the public!

            The Big Wyoming Horse Expo is organized by Sam and Patty Hales, whose horse business near Evanston, Wyoming, is “truly a partnership.” Sam will conduct a couple of clinics, and believes that the horse is “never wrong,” and that it is ultimately the human who is responsible for how a horse is trained and how it behaves.

            Other featured clinicians include: Steve Mantle, BLM wild horse trainer; Jessica Forliano, a John Lyons Certified Trainer who specializes in training hunter/jumper and performance horses; Rick Gaudreault, AQHA Professional Horseman and performance horse trainer and World’s Greatest Horseman competitor; Mike Anderson, trainer specializing in starting colts and working horses; Bridgette Benson, riding instructor and performance horse trainer; and Tracey Dalton, eventing competitor trainer of hunter/jumper and eventing horses and riders.

            Clinics, demonstrations and seminar topics will include 4-H, FFA and Collegiate Horse Show Judging, Colt and Wild Horse Starting and Saddle Training; Equine Massage, Hoof Care, Dental Work, Western Dressage, Reining Fundamentals, Equine Health, Strength Exercises for Riding and Jumping, Horsemanship (in many disciplines), Overcoming Extreme Obstacles, Cattle Work, Hunter Jumper Training, and much more. Representatives from the Wyoming Horse Council will speak on Horse Racing in Wyoming.

            An expo highlight will be Glenn Ryan, the lead packer for the Forest Service Rocky Mountain Regional Pack String. His clinics include Decker-style packing and demonstrations, overnight camping with equines, and packing large and awkward items such as posts and poles.

            Other activities include a stallion alley, breed demonstrations, a private treaty horse sale, trade show and food booths.

            Host hotels in Douglas are Sleep Inn & Suites, 307-358-2777; Clarion Inn & Convention Center, 307-358-9790; and Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites 307-358-4500.

            For for information about consignments, stalls, booths and activities, contact: Sam or Patty Hales at 307-266-4922 or 307-277-0325; horses@jlazyyl.com; or Connie Taylor at 307-358-3862; cftaylor@hughes.net.
