The Horse Fair is a perennial favorite throughout the Iowa equine community as it offers a perfect end to the cabin fever brought on by a typical Iowa winter. Many consider it to be the grand opening to the new season of horse events. Everyone considers it a perfect excuse to be among like-minded horse people.
Equine Blast is a program for 7th-12th grade students interested in equine science. The program focuses on real-world topics that impact the equine industry and youth. Students do not have to be enrolled in 4-H or own equine.
The Iowa Horse Judges Certification Clinic is designed to provide high-quality training for judges working with 4-H youth. These individuals are, or aspire to be, horse show judges and obtain practical hands-on experience in judging horse classes. Adult individuals completing the clinic & a written examination are included in the Iowa Horse Judges Directory. The event will be held at the Ellsworth Equestrian Facility.
Ready, Set, Show! Make plans to join the Showmanship clinics. Exhibitors will receive professional instruction from Jill Paxton while working with their horses on the ground. Auditors are welcome (no charge).
