The Breed Pavilion and the Horse & Farm Exhibits at Equine Affaire are two of the most popular exhibits at our event because they give our visitors the chance to go nose-to-muzzle with horses of a variety of breeds, types, and personalities. These exhibits are also the perfect opportunity for you, as a horse owner or horse business owner, to connect with thousands of potential new customers and contacts in the industry. Whether you own a business, are part of an association or organization, own a farm, stand a stallion, or have horses for sale, your brand belongs at Equine Affaire. There are myriad ways to participate, from using your stall fronts as promotional displays to sharing brochures and other literature to putting up photo displays, handing out business cards, and more. Best of all, exhibiting at Equine Affaire is an economical and fun way to expand your reach within the industry. Here’s how to participate!

Have a farm, stallion, or equine business? Choose a Horse & Farm Exhibit Stall! Prices are $160 for an in-line stall, $185 for an end-stall in the center aisle, or $215 for an end stall on an outer aisle. To participate in the Horse & Farm exhibits, exhibitors must commit to presenting for at least three days.

Regardless of position, all stalls are 10 x 10 stalls in the Gilligan Complex and come with:

  • A listing of the stall number, farm name, horse breed, and phone number (or website) on equineaffaire.com before the event
  • A listing of the above in the official event program
  • One four-day admission ticket to Equine Affaire ($52 value)
  • Tack stalls are available for an additional $110 each.

Are you looking for buyers for your horses, or are you an equine rescue or sanctuary hoping to place horses for adoption or expand the reach of your organization? Put those horses in front of tens of thousands of potential buyers or adopters with a For Sale stall or an Adoption Affaire stall. Many of our attendees come to Equine Affaire specifically to find their new best friend, so these stalls are the perfect way to market horses who need new homes. Prices are $160 for an in-line stall, $185 for an end-stall in the center aisle of the barn, and $215 for an end stall on an outer aisle of the barn. All stalls are 10 x 10 stalls in the Gilligan Complex, and include:

  • A “For Sale” or “Adoption Affaire” sign to post on the stall
  • A free listing on equineaffaire.com before the event
  • A listing in the event program
  • One four-day admission ticket to Equine Affaire ($52 value)
  • The option to sign up to display your horse in one of two exciting Sale Horse Showcase events during Equine Affaire
  • If a horse sells early, you may substitute another horse!
  • Tack stalls are available for an additional $110 each.

The Sale Horse Showcase events will take place on Thursday and Saturday afternoons in the US Equestrian Coliseum. Lead your sale horse or adoptee through the coliseum in front of crowds of interested attendees while our announcer shares details about your horse and how to get in contact with you. To find out how to sign up for a spot in the Sale Horse Showcases, contact Jessica Anderson at (740) 845-0085, ext. 112, or janderson@equineaffaire.com.

Are you part of a breed association or group, or do you own a rare breed of horse? Consider sharing your horses in the Breed Pavilion! The Breed Pavilion educates horse people about all breeds of horses and invites them to get involved with new breeds. Exhibit booths in the Breed Pavilion are specially designed portable 10’ x 10’ stalls set within exhibit booths, and each stall may be used to display up to four different horses each day, Thursday through Saturday, and up to three different horses on Sunday, which allows organizations to present multiple equine ambassadors throughout the event.
