The Northwest Horse Fair & Expo 2024, presented by AKINS Trailer Sales, will be returning for the TWENTY THIRD YEAR to Albany, Oregon, March 22, 23, 24, 2024 at the Linn County Fair & Expo Center! Once again we will be featuring top notch clinicians, special presentations, workshops, trade show shopping and your chance to be up close and personal with first class horses and their owners and trainers. This is a family friendly expo and is always a perfect place to enjoy three days to be educationally entertained. Great for those who love horses, the horse owners and remember there is something for all ages!

Top name equine professionals will be presenting clinics at the expo for spectators to be entertained while being educated! Headline clinicians for 2024 include JOHN LYONS, a longtime favorite of all horsepersons, with his vast knowledge of Horsemanship; MATT LIVENGOOD sharing his knowledge on Ranch Riding Classes; ABBY CARBAUGH teaching about Cowboy Dressage; KALLEY KRICKEBERG presenting Re-educating the retired Racetrack Thoroughbred. Much more is still in the process of finalizing.

The Northwest Horse Fair & Expo 2024 will be bringing back the super action packed COLT STARTING CHALLENGEUSA!

Experienced horse trainers will be working with four young, unbroken horses, gentling and saddling and riding them in just three days! Using Natural Horsemanship methods each trainer will work with the colt they have drawn, all working in round pens, in the same arena. Each trainer will have an opportunity to explain to the spectators what they are, will be doing and the why.

During the Sunday event of the expo the colts will be ridden and compete through a challenging obstacle course. The winner will be announced at the end of the obstacle course. Come each day and watch your special choice progress through to the finals.
