Horse enthusiasts will travel to Pomona, CA, from throughout the United States to convene at Equine Affaire—the nation’s premiere equine exposition and equestrian gathering— to be held at Fairplex on February 3–6, 2005. An impressive educational program, a large and diverse trade show, an expanded Breed Pavilion, a new Youth Pavilion, and Celebrity Horse Showcase will be among the highlights of the fifth annual Equine Affaire on the West Coast.
The educational program of the 2005 Equine Affaire will feature nearly 150 different clinics, seminars, and demonstrations over four days to offer horse enthusiasts a unique and affordable opportunity to see, hear, and learn from many of the nation’s leading equine professionals. More than 40,000 people are expected at Equine Affaire this February to shop at the trade show, attend educational sessions, and view hundreds of horses representing a vast number of breeds and disciplines.
“Equine Affaire is an opportunity for horsepeople representing all breeds and disciplines to come together, share their equine passions, and learn from one another,” said Eugenia Snyder, Executive Producer of Equine Affaire. “We’re proud to have developed a first-class, education-oriented event that is second-to-none and that serves the everyday horseperson as well as the professional equestrian and the serious competitor. We credit the enormous popularity and success of Equine Affaire to the quality of the programs we have provided throughout the years and to the tremendous enthusiasm of our exhibitors, sponsors, and attendees throughout the United States.”
