Western States Horse Expo returns to Murieta Equestrian Center June 9-11, 2023

 Scheduled for June 9-11, 2023 to be held at Murieta Equestrian Center, Sacramento, CA

 The new and revived crew is eagerly planning ahead to once again present the Nation’s Finest Horse Expo.  Horse Expo’s Founder, Miki Nelsen explained, “with the last two years being somewhat in a forced retirement it went from “it’s about time to retire to let’s do this!  After all, the perfect relationship has been developing for the last 15 years.”

Murieta Equestrian Center and Carol Anderson-Ward brought Nelsen onto the Board of their not-for-profit, the West Coast Equine Foundation, only to soon learn from each other that the goals and ambitions of the two were in total alignment.  This relationship was of course the beginning of why Horse Expo made the move to this world class facility in 2019, bringing us to a whole new level of equine exhibitions.  Combining all of these ingredients plus the desire to grow and push forward with continued education, innovation and entertainment it became clear that the West Coast Equine Foundation, Murieta Equestrian Center, Carol and her staff was in position to take the reins and invest what is needed to take Western States Horse Expo all the way to the top.  What does that really mean?  Well, just watch.  2023 will have an all new look and feel with a wonderful lineup of Clinicians and Exhibitors.

 Nelsen will manage the 2023 event and stay on for several years to insure a smooth and seamless transition while realizing growth with new energy from Carol and her amazing staff.  The Horse Expo offices have been moved to the gorgeous MEC Administration building on site.  “What a dream to have our offices at this facility!  The inspiration I get from merely looking out the window of this world class facility, seeing FIVE indoor arenas, 13 outdoor arenas, lawn areas, and trees for an unbelievable park-like setting, all on 104 acres.  A match to be sure!

Currently Clinicians are being contracted and exhibitors are sending in contracts.  Things are shaping up nicely.
