November 26-27, 2011 – Southern Arizona Horse Expo., 77 Arena, Oracle, Arizona. The Southern Arizona Horse Expo is the creation of Clay & Jacquie Harper and their desire to bring World Class Horse Trainers, Clinicians & Presenters to Southern Arizona. It is the only Horse Expo in the area, and according to Harper, This year’s Expo will be the best one yet.”
The Expo showcases Southern Arizona Trainers as well as Nationally known Trainers with Arizona ties. John Lyons,( last year’s headliner), was a U of A student and lived in Tucson in the 70′s. “We work to showcase Trainers and Presenters that the local horse person can contact and work with. Our format is a bit different than most big Expos in that the people can access our trainers to help them with their horses. We are a smaller Expo, but we have been compared to some of the biggest and best in the country”, said Harper.
Tickets are $10.00 in advance, and $15.00 on the days of the shows. Tickets can be purchased at all Boot Barn Stores in Tucson, and at most Tack & Feed stores in Southern Arizona. They can also be purchased online at the following link: www.southernarizonahorseexpo.com.
