An Equestrian Celebration In Our Backyard!
The 2012 Inaugural West Gippsland Equestrian Expo will be a huge celebration of the region’s equestrian talents, with competitions, exciting demonstrations and lectures from local riders, breeders and equine professionals.
We are expecting a large crowd to embrace the event, which we hope will be a boost for local businesses who have, particularly in recent times, been doing it tough competing with online stores and the high Aussie dollar. We hope that this event brings a little pride in the area and hopefully reminds residents and visitors what a great area we live in if you are interested in Equestrian pursuits. Competitions & Demonstrations – Indoor One
We are looking forward to utilizing the very impressive Indoor One at Tonimbuk Equestrian Centre to show case competitions in Showing, Show Jumping and Novelty Racing as well as featuring a wonderful Dressage Master Class, a Reining Demonstration, Stock Horse Demonstration and Harness. We also have some visual treats with Miniature Horse show jumping, Vaulting and three separate Stallion Parades. We are blessed with many talented horsemen and women in the area and this will be a wonderful opportunity to show them off, as well as watch some fierce rivalry, with some great cash and prizes up for grabs! Trade Hall & Education – Indoor Two
One of the most important parts of the West Gippsland Equestrian Expo is our trade hall. We are hoping all local equine related businesses get behind this event and bring along their products and services to showcase to our attentive audience. This is a great opportunity for those who find the price of other major events too high to attend. This trade hall is designed to be more intimate, more exclusive and far more affordable than most trade events. With up to 100 businesses in attendance however, it will have a great buzz in the aisles and we expect those businesses in attendance to do very well on the day. We will also have two demonstration arenas set up at either end of the indoor, to teach visitors about equine health and care, with feet, teeth, body work, nutrition and training all looked at by local professionals. We will also be featuring one ‘project’ horse which will have a journey with five professionals which spectators and follow throughout the day, highlighting all of the care to produce a safe, sound, riding horse. There will be many bargains from stands on the day and many new products and services, making for a great day out! Your Host and the Venue
