This year’s Expo will include the Youth Pro- Am on Friday evening with competitors ages 12 to 18 able to compete. Youth interested in competing in the timed obstacle course with professional trainers are invited to apply to compete in the event. The Youth Pro-Am participating trainers are Warwick Schiller, Ed Dabney, Evan Bonner, TJ Clibborn and Glen Stewart. Another new addition this year is performances by Endo, the Blind Horse. Endo had both eyes removed at the age of 12 but has continued to train with his partner Morgan.

This inspirational duo will hit the expo stage Saturday night performing in the Equine Experience.
