Nation’s largest horse-related trade show coming to Columbus

Jack McLaughlin

Saddle up, Columbus, because the country’s largest horse-related trade show is setting up shop later this month.

Equine Affaire, an event which attracts an annual 60,000 horseback riders and horse enthusiasts, is coming to the Ohio Expo Center April 13-16.

Tickets can be purchased here.


The event features a massive (the country’s largest) horse-related trade show, in addition to educational sessions and demonstrations, a Breed Pavillion where visitors can interact with horses and even it’s own series of head to head horseback challenges, The Versatile Horse & Rider Competition.

The competition, which takes place Friday, includes 25 preselected horses who race the clock (and each other) to win their share of a $5,500 cash prize pool.

Visitors can also try their own hand at the International Liberty Horse Association Invitational Freestyle, which features handlers guiding horses and handlers through an obstacle course and other feature without the use of a track.
