The Safe Horse Project is a partnership of equine organizations and professionals who want to grow the horse industry in Mississippi. We can’t do it alone and hope you can join our efforts by becoming an event sponsor for the 2023 Heart of the Horse Expo! This exciting Expo will feature the finals of a 120 day Trainers Challenge competition, a live Safe Horse Auction of the Challenge horses to approved homes, and equine exhibits and vendors. The horses used for this event will all be untrained, most from rescue situations, and will be transformed by this event into desirable equine riding partners.
A keepsake program/sales catalog will include listings of sponsors’ services and information. This program will be available to all attendees as well as being provided to new horse owners as part of the owner package. This information will also be available to the public leading up to and after the event on our web site and Facebook page.
If you have an equine related business or craft, consider participating as a vendor at the Heart of the Horse Expo on Saturday, May 20th. The Trainers Challenge finals begin at 9:00 a.m. with the most popular class, Freestyle. Winners will be announced at the Awards Ceremony, followed by the drawing and announcement of the winner of the Polaris Ranger raffle. Festivities will ramp back up after a brief break with the Live Safe Horse Auction of the Challenge horses. We expect a good crowd all day, with lots of opportunities for spectators to browse the exhibits and vendors on the concourse.
Vendor/Exhibitor fee is $25 for 10’ x 10’ space unless it is included in a Sponsor package. Tables and chairs may be available if requested in advance. Otherwise, plan to supply your own display equipment.
Deadline to book Vendor space is Friday, May 12, 2023. Reserve your space by completing this short on-line form: Vendor Reservation Form
