of the YEAR

at Murieta Equestrian Center, Sacramento, CA


Well, never in my wildest dreams did I think we would be here today. It is astounding to me that we are being told we cannot happen. Yes, we understand and yes we want everyone to be safe and sound but here’s the thing… THIS is where HORSE HAPPENS. This is where horse meets rider, meets education, meets competition, meets the industry. This is where we meet our friends and even make new ones.

Western States Horse Expo has been doing this for 21 years. We are actively planning what 2021 is going to look like. Almost all Educators who were scheduled for 2020 are in for 2021, many of the other activities planned will be attempted. I say attempted because I really cannot speak for those involved at this time. Every event in the world, and very much this event, are in severe pain. But there is that old saying….”If it were easy, everyone would be doing it”. Seriously, though, exhibitors large and small lost all of their events, they lost a place to sell, a place to teach about new products, a place to meet you and receive feedback. We pray every day that we all make it at our chosen career.

Where We Plan To Be

Please become active on our social media and sign up for our emails. The Horse Expo and the 200 exhibitors you love to see will be sending coupons, new product information, blogs, videos to your inbox/news feed on a regular basis til the end of the year. We promise every send will have value in the form of financial or education. Can you say 40% off at Goode Rider? You can still meet with barn builders and get that barn built. Merhow Trailers? Check them out!! Supporting your favorite exhibitor is key….they are still out there AND many have killer new websites and other creative ideas just so you can continue to interact, until we meet again.
