It is hard to believe there is just one month to go before the West Michigan Winter Horsefest! We are very excited to have many of our vendors returning from last year in addition to some fresh new people and products to introduce Michigan to.
Whether you are looking for something unique for a holiday gift, or the latest greatest product for you or your horse, there will definitely be something for everyone!
You will not want to miss the action in our new interactive demo ring. We will have horses from several different disciplines showcasing a variety of Fashion and Functional riding apparel - for both in and out of the show ring. Saddleseat, Dresssage, Show Hack, Western, Showmanship, Hunter/Jumper - name the discipline we've got you covered! Even Sidesaddle..
Popular coach and clinician Leesa Massman is joining us to provide some great tips on training your horse and getting the most out of your communication with each other! Her showmanship demo is not just for showring handlers, these tips are great for everyone who needs a leg up in controlling and communicating with your horses. In addition, she will provide tips and tricks for training in the winter - no indoor needed! These tools can be used in a stall or a barn aisle.
We have two saddle fitters to help you take the guess work out of how to fit your saddle to your horse to ensure he or she is as comfortable and ready for peak performance! There are also two different Massage Therapists who will give you tools to improve your horse/dog's' circulation and provide comfort for after those strenuous workouts.
