Midwest Horse Fair Announces 2011 Theme

The Midwest Horse Fair, one of the nation’s top three-day equestrian events, will be rolling out the red carpet in 2011. This annual equine expo, now in its 32nd year, will be held April 15, 16 and 17, 2011 at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wis. The theme for the 2011 Midwest Horse Fair will be “StarGrazing.”

Each year the Midwest Horse Fair brings in an incredible array of top clinicians and exhibitors from all over the country, and 2011 will be another opportunity to let the stars of the horse industry shine. The limelight will be on everything and anything to do with those magnificent horses.

“Our StarGrazing theme for the 2011 Midwest Horse Fair, has to do with Hollywood and movie stars,” said Rhonda Reese, General Manager of the Midwest Horse Fair. “We are planning to bring a bit of the red carpet glamour to the Midwest. This theme allows us to shine the spotlight on the many high-quality clinicians, exhibitors, and events that are planned for the 2011 Midwest Horse Fair.”
Started in 1979, the Midwest Horse Fair has been continuously growing, with a strong focus on education and high-quality entertainment for individual horse owners, families and those who just love horses. The attendance in 2010 set an all-time record of 56,000 people during the three-day event. Over 500 exhibitors offer unique shopping and educational opportunities. Demonstrations and ongoing entertainment, along with hundreds of clinics, seminars and events throughout the weekend offers something for everyone.

The best way to stay up to date with all the happenings planned for the 2011 Midwest Horse Fair is to visit their web site at Visit often as new events and clinicians are added on a regular basis. Come join the Midwest Horse Fair as they begin “StarGrazing”…it will be the event where the stars will shine.

The Midwest Horse Fair is owned by the Wisconsin State Horse Council, Inc. All proceeds from the Fair are returned to the WSHC and are used to represent and foster a unified equine industry in Wisconsin, promote the equine through leadership, education, service and communication, and to take a proactive role in the future growth and development of the equine industry.
