SASKATOON, Saskatchewan – Prairieland Park, along with partners; the Saskatchewan Horse
Federation and the Western College of Veterinary Medicine want to thank everyone who
attended to the 8th Annual Saskatchewan Equine Expo.
The weekend showcased the diversity of the equine industry with demonstrations, competitions
and information sessions. The very first Off-Track Thoroughbred Challenge was a huge success
attracting riders from across the province who presented their retired racehorse in a new
discipline. These outstanding horses and riders proved the versatility of the Thoroughbred breed
and their own personal training abilities. Results of the OTTB Challenge can be found on our
website at www.saskatchewanequineexpo.com
The very popular NAERIC Trainer Challenge saw three outstanding young horsemen demonstrate
their own methods with three young horses. At the end of the good-natured competition Amos
Abrahamson from Maple Creek, Saskatchewan took home the trophy buckle and the title of
Trainer Challenge Champion. Scott Todd and Jason Irwin were presented with custom made bits
from Wilm Saddlery, and prizes from Back On Track.
The weekend was filled with information and entertainment for the horse enthusiast, while the
trade show offered a wide variety of equine products, as well as, western clothing and décor.
This weekend saw just over 8000 attendees to the show, demonstrations and the trade show.
