Elevate your riding skills and learn how to communicate better with your horse at the upcoming Mane Event, Equine Education and Trade Fair May 12 – 14, 2017 at the Western Fair District in London, ON. Horse owners and enthusiasts are in for a treat at this very diversified horse expo. The Mane Event is very proud of their commitment to providing the very best equine related education, shopping and entertainment all at one location.
The Mane Event has been hosting equine expos for 14 years in Western Canada and we were extremely pleased to be invited to replace the All Equine Show previously hosted by the Western Fair District. Our mission is to educate, strengthen and unite the equine community and industry and we are excited to be expanding to Ontario!
Make sure your experience includes a stop by the Ontario Equestrian Federation booth. Th eOEF is proud to the be Lecture Hall Sponsor at The Mane Event.

- Aaron Ralston – Reining

The education-based Trainers Challenge is set to be a scorcher this year with Kerry Kuhn, Dale Clearwater and Ryan Rose, working with horses from the Mack Charolaise and Quarter Horses. The trainers will work with these colts for Friday and Saturday and then ride them in an obstacle course on Sunday – the goal of the Trainers Challenge is to have everyone learn including the trainers.
Attendees will also be enlightened by a variety of presenters in the lecture area on saddle fitting, nutrition, equine health, and much more. Organizers of The Mane Event have not forgotten the upcoming young horse owners and riders – 4H, Pony Clubs and riding clubs! This year they will have a special Youth Lecture Area which will feature some of the clinicians doing special presentations for youth.
The Horsey Fun Continues Friday & Saturday Night
Also, be sure not to miss the Friday night Youth Pro-Am sponsored by “Back On Track” held in the main arena at 7:00pm. This is an event that teams youth riders and their horses up with one of the clinicians (I feel “Mane Event” trainers is a bit unclear) to ride a timed obstacle course. When the concept was first introduced at last year’s Red Deer Mane Event, the demand to bring it back was very high so here it is again! There is no cost to ride in this competition and prize packages will be offered by Back On Track. Applications are available on the Mane Event website and it is limited to youth riders only.
After you have shopped and learned from some of the very best in the equine world today, it’s time to relax and enjoy some great entertainment in the “Equine Experience”! This popular event is held in the main arena, Friday and Saturday evening starting at 8:15pm. This year’s lineup includes Tommie Turvey, the Canadian Cowgirls; Silver Star Precision Riding Team; the High Flying Haflingers and will include trick riding, vaulting and great equine entertainment.
Shop ‘Till You Drop!
What would a horse expo be without shopping? In the trade show, you will see a diverse group of vendors from across the USA and Canada with only equine products and services, western clothing, equine décor and home furnishings for horse owners and enthusiasts.
Affordable Horsey Fun

About the Mane Event
The Mane Event, Equine Education and Trade Fair is a family owned and operated business that hosts equine expos in British Columbia, Alberta, and has recently expanded to Ontario and Scottsdale, Arizona. We have been in operation since 2004 and started simply because we wanted to educate ourselves and our friends on the many aspects of horse training and the many disciplines available. We have owned horses for over 40 years and our two daughters still ride and show competitively. Our goal is to ensure that attendees and exhibitors feel the family atmosphere of the expo, and that attendees feel that they have learned some new things to try with their horses. As horse owners and business owners we are committed to growing and uniting the horse industry.
