Western States Horse Expo

Presented by Western States Horse Expo at Cal Expo

2018 is the 20th Anniversary year for the Western States Horse Expo!

For the last two decades this exposition has celebrated the spirit of the horse, the equestrian and rural lifestyle with all that they encompass. This has been the premier event of its kind, and had been one of the most trusted resources for innovation, inspiration, and education within the equestrian community unlike any other!

After a full day of demonstrations, lectures and amazing shopping, attendees will be able to witness the Magnificent 7 All-Around Stock-Horse Championship where seven of the best horse/human teams in the country will be competing in four events, in one evening, on the same horse. This is an event sure to thrill everyone!

The Western Select Barrel Race is happening on Saturday evening and Sunday morning. This race has a jackpot of $10,000 making it one of the largest purses west of the Mississippi. Riders will be racing for cash ($10,000) and prizes and the excitement of the crowd! Of course, the Western Select Ranch and Barrel Horse Sale is going to be an exhilarating event happening on Sunday. Managed for the Western States Horse Expo by Parnell Dickenson, this sale will showcase some of the very best horses on the market today. Grab a bid paddle and be part of the excitement as you bring home your new horse!
