Southern Horse Bonanza at The Miller Coliseum



The Southern Horse Bonanza is coming to the Tennessee Miller Coliseum in Murfreesboro, Tennessee March 8-10, 2013.  The Southern Horse Bonanza will provide a wide scope of activities to horse enthusiasts from all different backgrounds and interests each day of the expo. During the event, attendees will enjoy clinics presented by nationally known horsemen, educational seminars, interactive demonstrations, as well as an opportunity to shop a wide variety of vendor booths.

The Southern Horse Bonanza kicks off the action on Friday, March 8 at 5:00 pm.  The first day of the Southern Horse Bonanza is free of charge to all attendees.  Attendees will have the opportunity to explore vendor booths as several nationally known clinicians begin the weekend activities with demonstrations in the main arena. 

Headlining this year’s event is renowned horseman Craig Cameron. Craig uses a philosophy of teaching that eliminates rough handling of horses earning him a well-deserved international following.  Joining Craig as the main clinicians are Tommy Turvey, the Equine Extremist; two time Extreme Mustang Makeover champion, Chase Dodd; natural horsemanship clinicians Mark and Miranda Lyon; and three-day event competitor and 2012 Southeast Mustang Makeover champion Elisa Wallace.

Award-winning author and equine clinician, Lisa Wysocky, is one of many equine professionals joining our clinicians and conducting demonstrations and lectures on Saturday March 9th.  Beginning at 9 am, there will be exciting demonstrations in three arenas, hands-on demonstrations and interactive displays, educational lectures from industry leaders, horse breeds and equine athletes representing a variety of different disciplines, and plenty of shopping for anyone interested in horses. 

The cost for Saturday is $25 for adults and $10 for children under 12 and 4H members. Included with Saturday admission is the evening Celebration of the Horse beginning at 6 pm.  The Celebration will showcase the spectacular diversity of the horse. 

Sunday March 10 will be a very special experience for 30 riders.  Craig Cameron, Tommy Turvey and Chase Dodd will hold mounted clinics to include individual and group instruction for participants as they ride their own horses.  Cost to ride in these clinics is $200 per horse.  Auditors are welcome to observe the various clinics throughout the day for just $10.    

Organizers of the Southern Horse Bonanza recognized the time is right to bring all horse enthusiasts together in Tennessee to learn more about the training and care of their equine companions.   Plan to spend March 8-10 in Murfreesboro at the 2013 Southern Horse Bonanza.  For tickets, clinic registration, vendor and current event information visit their website.
