MN Horse Expo

7 posts in this topic

The Minnesota Horse Expo will be April 24, 25, 26 at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds in St Paul.

Speakers include Stacy Westfall, Craig Cameron, Susan E Harris (gaited horse), and others.

Dodge PRCA Rodeo will be there Friday and Saturday nights, and Sunday afternoon. This is the same livestock and specialty act that has been at our county fair, and they are always exciting.

Admission is $8 for adults, $5 for seniors and youth.

Rodeo admission will range from $4-$10 depending on seating, plus daily Expo admission.

I am thinking that I would like to drive up for one of these days to check it out. The speakers are great. I watch Craig Cameron often for tips on working with the horses...

Stacy Westfall is also a great speaker and will offer some wonderful training tips.

If anybody is thinking about attending lets hear about it and maybe we can have a little FM get together. Maybe have lunch or dinner there and get to know each other.

I usually go to the Expo every year but this year I will be in Florida. They have a great 4H tack sale where you can get almost everything you need for a decent price, get there early to get the best deals. Actually, they have so many booths there with so many items, you can find anything you want/need including artwork. The speakers are also usually very good. Have fun!

I'm pretty sure that I'll be there on Friday. We have in the past pulled the kids out of school and gone shopping! I've carried way too much stuff out to the truck in the past to think I'm going to avoid that this year.

4H sale is great. I always find something I need. I also buy all my wormer for the next year, etc..

Just wanted to bring this thread back up to the top to remind everybody that the expo is going on as we speak...

I dont know if I am going to make it. Depends on what happens this weekend with the weather.

Two of my kids will be there with their FFA Horse judging team on Sunday.

My mom turns 70 on Sunday, so hubby and I are going to her house instead. I am bummed, since I will be within two miles of the Expo when I pick my niece up from college to join in on the party.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
