Are you asking yourself this…

Beginning tomorrow the Western Fair District welcomes horses, donkeys, horse trainers, cowboys/girls and enthusiasts for three-days of demonstrations, entertainment and shopping.

Not convinced the whole family will love it?

The All Equine Show is a unique way to experience equine culture, interact with live animals, watch horses perform and do some shopping, all within the city limits! Plus free admission for children 11 and under. Here’s why you should plan to attend:

1. Mini Mechanical Bull

Mechanical bull riding is usually reserved for the older crowd, but this year your little cowgirl or cowboy can put their skills to the test on our Mini Mechanical Bull - for free!

2. Fantastic Entertainment

The All Equine Show provides great entertainment for horse lovers of any age. For older kids be sure to check out shows like Barrel Racing or Pole Bending, they’re high speed and full of action! Younger kids will love the Silver Star Drill team’s memorizing routine or watch the Donkey Demonstration. Let’s not forget the fan favourite Trainer’s Challenge, this is a unique opportunity to see three of Canada’s top trainers put their skills to work, demonstrating their abilities and techniques on how to train an un-broke horse.
