The Uxbridge Horsemen’s Association will be presenting the fourth annual Everything Equine Exposition and Trade Show in Uxbridge’s Elgin Park on Saturday May 10.
With approximately 100 vendors/exhibitors, this is the opportunity to shop, attend a lecture, seminar or demonstration, or view a presentation on a wide variety of horse-related topics.
Among those already confirmed to attend are Don Halladay, a Parelli three star rated Natural Horsemanship Instructor from Alberta; the Cedar Valley Polo Club who will be conducting polo challenges in the morning and afternoon; the Ontario Percheron Horse Association raising awareness of the 13th World Percheron Congress being held for the first time ever in Ontario at the C.N.E. Grounds this summer; and the OEF with organization information and membership services.
Everything Equine runs from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, and can be enjoyed for an admission fee of only $7.00. Kids 12 and under are free.
The Uxbridge Horsemen’s Association has been in existence for 30 years, informing and educating its members and the local horse community. The club consists of english and western riders and enthusiasts, from all disciplines and skill levels.
In addition to Everything Equine, the UHA organizes clinics, events, and trail rides throughout the year, while monitoring events affecting the equine community such as the horseback riding situation in the Durham Forest. Their efforts also benefit charitable causes. Recent donations include $2,400.00 to breast cancer research (raised by the Bike and Beast horse and cyclist partner poker run), the $1,400.00 proceeds from the Team Penning Event at last year’s Uxbridge Fall Fair to C.A.R.D. (The Community Association for Riding for the Disabled), and an annual mounted food drive that resulted in the largest ever single day donation to Uxbridge’s Loaves and Fishes Food Bank.
