2012 Bluebonnet Horse Expo - October 20 - Travis County Expo Center (Austin, TX)
The Bluebonnet Horse Expo is a day full of horses: learning, shopping, adopting and more! The 2012 Bluebonnet Horse Expo includes riding and training clinics with Austin Dressage Unlimited, Sue De Laurentis, Meredith Duggar, Aaron England, Jere Johnson Dan Keen, Jack Lieser, Lone Star Vaulters, Charlotte Morris, Lindsey Scofield, Kaylon Sullins, Dr. Mary Traverse, Anne Van Dyke, Joe Weitekamp, Dena Wilks, and Trey Young. The event offers plenty of shopping with a horse-themed Art Auction, tack sale, live auction of saddles and other equipment, and vendor area.
Attendees will get the chance to meet approximately 50-60 horses, donkeys and mules who are available for adoption through Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society. Twenty of those horses will be showing off their training and skills in the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge event that runs from 8am until 1:15pm. The Training Challenge is a competition in which professional trainers and foster homes have ninety days to work with a rescue horse. They then compete over an obstacle course and in a freestyle event. Prizes are awarded in four categories: Professional Trainer, Foster Horse Under Saddle, Foster Horse in Hand, and Youth. More Bluebonnet horses will strut their stuff in the main arena at 2:00pm for the Meet the Bluebonnet Horses Parade. Pre-approved adopters will qualify for adoption fee discounts and may take their new horses home from the Expo while new adopters will have the chance to apply to adopt and reserve the horse(s) they want to take home.
This year's Bluebonnet Horse Expo will be held October 20th at the Travis County Expo Center. The Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge Competition will be held in the outdoor arena and opens at 8am. The inside demonstrations start at 9am and the sale area and vendors area opens at the same time.
