Please see the up to date event schedule for current events

Discover horse breeds found throughout Alberta, and learn which activities these equine athletes excel.

There will be 18 breeds on display at Horse Haven Stables, located at the northwest end of the Agriculture Barns, in an adopted western setting from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.  Horse Haven will feature presentations, demonstrations, and plenty of horse sense as breeders talk up their equine companions and promote the breeds they love.

Horse Haven will also feature plenty of interactive and educational opportunities, with an "activity zone" involving displays and demos regarding horsemanship. 

These light horse breeds can also be seen in action daily in demonstrations in the Northern Lights Arena and Agrium Western Event Centre.

Kids will enjoy the activity book showcasing the breeds, and can take them home for colouring fun!

Itching to own a horse? Horse Sense 101, presented daily, tells you all you need to know.
