It is an event that horse enthusiasts look forward to all year.
The 6th annual Saskatchewan Equine Expo continues until Sunday (February 19) at Saskatoon Prairieland Park.
The show attracts a wide audience from both urban and rural areas, according to Lori Cates, Prairieland's agriculture manager.
"There are a number of stables close to cities like Saskatoon. The equine industry is very big and there are a lot of people involved one way or another with horses"
Equine Expo is organized by Saskatoon Prairieland Park, along with volunteers from the Saskatchewan Horse Federation, various equine breed groups and the Western College of Veterinary Medicine (WCVM) at the University of Saskatchewan.
Cates says one of the goals is to celebrate the diversity of the equine industry.
"We try and showcase a number of different breeds, their athleticism and the horsemanship skills of the various trainers and clinicians."
A highlight is the Equine Extravaganza which is held on Friday and Saturday evening. There will be a 'battle of the breeds', ultimate cowhorse competition, mini-chuckwagons and kids demonstrations during the two hour show.
The rest of the schedule features information sessions by WCVM faculty and students, various horse clinics and a trade show.
