The Western States Horse Expo is as good a horse show as it gets. One of the nation’s largest, the best equine experts grace the stages and arenas each year, and education and entertainment is what Horse Expo is all about. Attendees will learn from industry experts, veterinarians, and health care specialists at Horse Expo University, attend workshops taught by skilled craftspeople, and enjoy events from every discipline. 

Horse Expo is famous for highlighting extraordinary clinicians, and this year continues that tradition with Jonathan Field, Chris Cox, Monty Roberts, and Richard Winters, among many others.

New events like the Equus Masters brings together four unstarted colts and trainers who will gentle, saddle, and then demonstrate their training skills. The NCDC Combined Driving Event, Reining Boot Camp, and Cowboy Dressage clinics have also been added to the schedule. 

In addition to silent auctions, wine and beer tasting, specialty food courts, and musical performances, there is the shopping with one of the largest collections of equine and Western lifestyle-related vendors from around the country, including Rigs & Digs, where attendees can shop and compare the great lineup of horse trailers from many of the top brands.

The Western States Horse Expo takes place at the Murieta Equestrian Center in Sacramento, California, June 11-13. For more information visit
