Now in its 12th year, The Mane Event has planned three action packed days beginning October 23rd at Heritage Park in Chilliwack where the industry’s best trainers and clinicians will be featured. This year world renowned clinician Pat Parelli returns to the Northwest where he will join 3-time Olympian Jimmy Wofford. Wofford is one of the best known eventing trainers in the world today and has had at least one student on every U.S. Olympic, World Championship and Pan-American team since 1978. FEI dressage judge Kristi Wysocki, cowboy dressage clinicians Dale Rumens and Dr. Jenni Grimmett, barrel racing clinician Doug Leasor and Sandi Simons will also be presenting.
Returning to The Mane Event is the ever popular “Trainer’s Challenge.” This year expect excellent horsemanship from three very different competitors: David Simons, Australia; Glen Stewart, British Columbia; and Sonny Garguilo, New York. The Trainer’s Challenge is a unique opportunity to see three trainers put their skills to work and show the public their ability to train an unbroke horse. New this year and sure to become a crowd favorite is The Working Ranch Challenge. This special event will feature six historical British Columbia ranches with their teams of genuine working ranch hands.
Besides education and learning, the expo offers a trade show featuring all things equine, from everything needed to care for and ride a horse, to art, clothing, home décor and pet products.
