Dust off your walking shoes, finish your horse-related shopping list, gather your friends, and head for the 7th annual Western States Horse Expo Pomona, March 9-11, 2018. Held at the Fairplex in Pomona, California, this heralded event brings everything imaginable in the horse world to attendees, from bits and spurs to education from noted scholars to demonstrations by the best horsemen on the planet. Combine all that with other exciting events the expo offers, and the expo days will whiz by! Shopping alone can occupy three days of expo bliss!

And to top it off, due to popular demand Craig Cameron will return to the Expo with his rock-and-roll, stomp your feet, cheer for your favorites, Extreme Cowboy Race! Featuring 13 “extremely” challenging obstacles, the first of two preliminaries will be Friday night at 6 p.m., followed by the second preliminary Saturday night at 6 p.m. The finalists will charge full blast into the arena on Sunday at 1:15 when the top ten from each preliminary will confront the ticking clock as they ride like their lives depend on it! These three rousing events are not to be missed!

“We know what horse owners want,” says Miki Nelsen, president and owner of the Western States Horse Expos. “And we’re constantly aiming to provide the very best, from education to entertainment to shopping. We’re serious about learning about horses, about providing the best for them, and we’re also pretty serious about having fun with them!”
