Due to the Coronavirus outbreak and the guidance of the Centers Disease for Control and Prevention (CDC), the 2020 Idaho Horse Council Horse Expo has been canceled and rescheduled for April 9, 10, 11, and 2021. The 2021 Idaho Horse Expo will feature the same amazing clinicians, competitions, demonstrations, and or seminars with a few minor changes.

Moving forward, this collaboration will make the 2021 Horse Expo an event to remember.
