Horse enthusiasts of all ages are invited to experience all things equine during Horse Expo Pomona at Fairplex.
The event starts today and runs through Saturday.
“We have a remarkable line-up of world-class clinicians, including headliner Chris Cox, master horseman and one of the most respected equine experts in the country,” said Horse Expo Pomona founder Miki Nelsen, “and of course the best equine-related shopping extravaganza that you could imagine. Once again we’re featuring an outstanding juried art show, Trail Symposium, breed demonstrations, Young Rider Park and the Book Corral, which was over-the-moon popular last year.”
The art show reflects the lifestyle and passion people have for horses. The prices for the art work are reasonable, and there is an array of pieces and mediums, from charcoals, sculptures, and oils to jewelry.
The Expo’s Young Rider Park will again feature fun projects for youngsters, with visits from some of the clinicians to entertain them and from authors who will read to the young cowboy and cowgirl hopefuls. A petting zoo will again complement the Young Rider Park.
The Book Corral is a marvelous universe of authors and their creations, punctuated with informal talks from many of them. The authors are pleased to chat with Expo attendees, and gladly autograph their books. From the famous to the will-be-famous, these authors have a wealth of stories to share.
Breed demonstrations are great fun to watch, resplendent with polished horses and riders in costume. Learning about various breeds is part of the educational goal of the Expo.
The Trail Symposium provides an array of educational demonstrations, from cooking over a campfire to “leave no trace” camping with horses. In addition to the how-to topics, presenters will discuss endurance riding, competitive trail riding, the preservation and maintenance of trails, trailer repairs and upkeep, and updates from the Bureau of Land Management.
