Star-Spangled Celebration for July 4th Horse Expo in Colorado Springs

Rocky Mountain Horse Expo teams with Ranch Rodeo and Extreme Racing

Are you looking for a fun and lively get-away for this year’s July 4th holiday? The Rocky Mountain Horse Expo (July 3-5) in Colorado Springs packs the Norris-Penrose Event Center with a full schedule of family entertainment and equine expertise.

Throughout the weekend, top clinicians and speakers will fill four arenas plus a classroom. Look for Chris Cox, twice champion of the prestigious Road to the Horse™ Colt Starting competition—he’ll be presenting twice every day. Long-time favorite Expo clinicians Debbie Bibb, Art Kiger and Jason Patrick demonstrate their particular styles of excellent horsemanship, and Karen Scholl, always a crowd favorite, presents her effective approach, too. Dressage gets a spotlight at this Expo, with Jennifer Diamond showing that there’s really not a chasm between the western disciplines and the classical. And Moses Woodson joins the line-up with some advice on training and riding gaited horses.

Dr. Temple Grandin will spend Saturday with us at the Expo. Dr. Grandin is a noted authority on animal behavior and popular author. She will speak at two sessions and be available to autograph copies of her newest book, Animals Make Us Human: Creating the Best Life for Animals.

In the Stadium on Saturday evening, the Ride for the Brand WRCA Ranch Rodeo puts real cowboys from legendary American ranches to the test—what could be more patriotic than that? All three days, the Extreme Cowboy Race sends individual horsemen and women over, around and sometimes under obstacles, as they gallop and spin against the clock. (Go to http://www.ExtremeCowboyAssociation.com or call (254) 595-2393 for race information and applications.) Cowboys for Kids hosts its own “extreme” event: Extreme Junior Dummy Roping, for toddlers to teens.

Every Rocky Mountain Horse Expo includes horse demonstrations, private treaty horse sales, classroom sessions with renowned speakers, fun for children of all ages, and shopping for everyone. With the help of Rocky Mountain Farmers Union, the Horse Expo also features the Green Resource University, to help horse property owners and ranchers “go green” with the latest technology.

Step out and celebrate the July 4th weekend at the Rocky Mountain Horse Expo, July 3-5 at the Norris-Penrose Arena, Colorado Springs. For more information, booth and stall contracts, speaker bios and schedules, be sure to visit rockymountainhorseexpo.com or call (303) 292-4981. Make time for the other two Rocky Mountain Horse Expos this summer, too: Eagle, July 24-26, and Ignacio, September 18-20.
