Horse lovers, rejoice! Whether you’ve never set foot in a stable or you’ve been riding your whole life, Equine Affaire in Ohio invites you to join its annual celebration of all things equine. Bring the whole family to the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus, Ohio, on April 11-14, and enjoy North America’s premier equine exposition and equestrian gathering.
From cowboys to trick riders to show jumpers and more, Equine Affaire showcases the diversity of the horse world. Spend your day exploring hands-on educational exhibits, learning from some of the world’s best horsemen and horsewomen, and meeting horses and equestrians from all over the world. Marvel at the extraordinary trust displayed between horse and rider during the Versatile Horse and Rider Competition on Friday.

In between clinics, competitions, and exhibits, shop for your perfect souvenir at North America’s largest horse-related trade show. And if you’ve never ridden before, it’s your turn in the saddle with the American Horse Council’s Time to Ride program, which provides new riders with their first introduction into the wonderful world of horseback riding.
