Everything Equine celebrates “A Decade of Equine Education” this weekend at the Champlain Valley Exposition in Essex Junction. Established in 2004 this Vermont Equine show has educated equestrians of all levels on the latest innovations in the horse industry. Over the past 10 years the organization has celebrated many aspects of the equine world from eventing, dressage, western, training, breeds, family involvement, and much more.
In addition to the educational value, Everything Equine has sought to entertain horsemen and horse lovers alike with its “Horsin’ Around on Saturday Night” show, featuring horses large and small performing and exhibiting for the crowd. Many of the clinicians featured in the educational portions of the show often perform for the audience in this show featuring horses, music, and more.
A highlight for those interested in shopping for their equine friends, are over 100 commercial and informational booths at the show. From a new hoof pick to a new horse trailer, horse enthusiasts can find most anything they may need for horse and rider.
Australian equine expert Dan James will be the featured guest at the Everything Equine celebration. James, a World Class colt trainer, will highlight long reining, body control, and liberty performance. He continues to push the limits of horsemanship and entertainment with eye-opening clinics and exhilarating performances, helping horse enthusiasts expand their knowledge and understanding for the love of the horse. James will also be featured in the Saturday evening Horsin’ Around show.
