Rocky Mountain Horse Expo Draws Equine Stars to Denver
Posted on Thu, February 24, 2011

DENVER - You owe it to your horse to make it to the Rocky Mountain Horse Expo March 11-13 at the National Western Complex. You'll come home with a bag full of goodies and a head full of new ideas on how to improve your horsemanship, regardless of your breed or discipline.


"We really have an amazing range of talent at this year's Expo," said Bill Scebbi, executive director of the Colorado Horse Council. "I'm thrilled we're able to offer this caliber and variety of ways for us all to become better horse people."


Take a clinic, ride with an expert, sit in on a presentation, network with other horse lovers - this is your chance to connect with the larger horse community.


For exceptional equine entertainment, check out the Mane Event performances Friday and Saturday night. The show features breeds and performers ranging from medieval re-enactments to Guy McLean's fire-fueled ride and Rich Acosta's ring of fire. Draft horses, gaited horses, team penning and extreme trail are also part of the entertainment.


"We're really pleased to have such a great variety of acts in the Mane Event this year," Scebbi said. "We've got so many different breeds, so many disciplines, so many ways to appreciate these beautiful animals, I know everyone who comes out is going to have a great time."
