Equine Talent Booked by Texas Expo
The Equine Expo of Texas is taking place again this year on May 6-7 weekend
at Will Rogers Memorial in Fort Worth.
The Expo’s promoter, Linda Brown, raises Gypsy Cobs in Burleson and noticed
that the East Coast and West Coast of the U.S.
seem to have a high concentration of rare breeds, sophisticated trainers,
and unusual and exciting equine events.
This information begged the question, “ Why not in Texas?”
Jousting isn’t just a spectator activity.
It didn’t take long to discover that there is an incredible, almost underground,
world of excitement and equine talent right in our own state. Last
year’s and this year’s Expo have proven to be a goldmine of access to that
very incredible equine world. Some of the finest equine entertainers
in the state will wow you with their performances. You will meet TV and
movie star horses and stuntmen that live right here. Did you know
that the sophisticated and high technology world of cloning is happening
now in Texas? Come meet the company and learn the details. The
Olympic sport of Dressage isn’t only for someone else’s horse. Come
see our Gran Prix horse tell you how to get started. Jousting isn’t
just a spectator activity. Come see the armor and watch an actual
joust and learn about how to join in this exciting and historic sport.
Cutting and Reining aren’t just for men or just for Quarter Horses.

Why are you still torturing your horse by using a bit? Come learn
how to make your horse love you again by removing the pain and distraction.
Find out how easy it is to get the color you want in your foals by using
a $25 test.
Do you ever wonder about what to do with that bag of leather called a
harness? Learn about different types of driving, driving competitions
and how to get your horse started. Meet the attorney and ask all those liability

you know where the Texas riding trails are? Come learn about development

And, as always, come and shop till you drop with some of the finest and
most unusual vendors around. You won’t see most of these items at
other equine events. Our charity, Wings of Hope Equitherapy, will
benefit by a silent auction. Additionally, in your spare time (ha,
like you’ll have any!), join in “casino time” as we feature Blackjack and
Roulette both days with incredible prizes.
You’ll be exhausted, but you’ll never have more fun out of the saddle.
