We’re gearing up for the 3rd Annual Bluebonnet Horse Expo! The first two Expos were successful, and we expect the 2009 Expo to be even bigger and better.

This year’s Expo will be held October 10 from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm at the Travis County Expo Center in Austin, Texas.

The Expo is an exciting, family-friendly day full of learning,
education and horses. The event includes riding, training and horse care clinics and demonstrations. This year includes an improved vendors’ area for shopping, a sale of new and used tack, farm & ranch items, and horse/ranch themed jewelry, art-work and home décor, rescue
horses on hand to meet the public and the first annual Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Challenge.

All funds raised at the Bluebonnet Horse Expo benefit the horses, donkeys and mules of Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society. This event draws people from across the state of Texas and beyond, and we need your help to make it a success:
