THE EASTERN STATES Exposition in W. Springfield, MA, will once again become “horse-central” for horse lovers from throughout the East Coast and beyond when it hosts the 56th Equine Affaire on November 9-12. Since its introduction to New England in 1998 by founder and president, Eugenia Snyder, Equine Affaire has been a “must see” for horse enthusiasts associated with all breeds and equestrian disciplines. With an unwavering mission to elevate the equestrian experience, Equine Affaire offers an educational program that is second-to-none, the largest horse-related trade show in the East, top equine entertainment and competition, and endless opportunities to experience, buy, and sell horses of all types. Equine Affaire is 6

where you see, feel, touch, compare, try on, experience and smell all aspects of the horse world in person and, most important, “in horse.” At the heart of Equine Affaire is an educational program designed to help horsemen of all riding and driving persuasions reach their equestrian goals at home, on the trail, and in the competitive arena. Hundreds of clinics, seminars, and demos by many of the foremost trainers, coaches, competitors, judges, TV personalities, and industry professionals will be presented in six venues—so a little advance planning will be required to know just what to do when! This year’s gathering will feature Olympic, Pan American, World Equestrian Games, and World

Champion greats including Greg Best, Phillip Dutton, Craig Johnson, Steffen Peters, and Suzy Stafford as well as outstanding overall horsemen such as Ken McNabb, Julie Goodnight, Van Hargis, Chris Irwin, Steve Lantvit, and Wendy Murdoch. Clinic topics will cover the gamut from the English disciplines of dressage, jumping, eventing, driving, and English pleasure through the western sports of cutting, reining, western pleasure, ranch riding, cowboy dressage, and trail. Sessions will also be presented on liberty horse training, mounted games, the training of easy gaited horses, vaulting, and more. If you’re inclined to do more than just watch clinics at Equine Affaire—you can also receive individual instruction from or have your horse trained by one of the top clinicians through Equine Affaire’s Ride With The Best program. The experience is as economical as it is educational, as expenses normally associated with traveling for just one continued on page 8

Ride With The Best clinic fees start at just $85 and include stabling and event admission. Participants will be reviewed and selected based on written applications and videos submitted by September 8, so check out all of the great clinicians and clinic opportunities at equineaffaire.com. Equine Affaire’s Equine Fundamentals Forum, located in the Mallary South, will be where new riders and horse owners—and those still developing basic skills—will meet and learn together with their own demo ring and savvy string of experts sharing solid “horse sense” that forms the building blocks of good horsemanship. The Forum will offer video presentations, hands-on interactive displays about equine health and management, and fun activities tailored to the youngest horse lovers. Of course the focus of any “horse fest” is obviously the horses, and you’ll find plenty of ways to discover and appreciate the amazing diverPut your skills to the test in the Versatile Horse & Rider Competition on Friday, November 10 at 1:00 p.m.

sity of the horse world in the Breed Pavilion, Horse & Farm Exhibits, and breed demos throughout the weekend. Get up close and personal with equines from miniatures to drafts, gaited to easy gaited breeds, and stock horses to sport horses. Representatives of dozens of horse, pony, color, and breed associations and registries will be on hand in the Breed Pavilion to answer your questions and share their exceptional horses with you. And, if you’re wanting to learn more about a breed, find horses for sale, research stallions for your mare, and review training and breeding facilities, take time to explore the Horse & Farm Exhibits located in C Barn right next to the coliseum. The Horse & Farm Exhibits is where horse and farm owners and horse service providers connect directly with customers and share information. Another Equine Affaire favorite is the Versatile Horse & Rider Competition, sponsored by Nutrena. This ultimate test of horsemanship will bring 25 preselected horse and rider teams to the coliseum on Friday afternoon to ride against the clock in front of a judge who will rate their performance through a pattern of obstacles and horsemanship tests. The race course will embody the definition of versatility requiring

jumping over obstacles, working gates, crossing bridges, performing rollback and gymkhana maneuvers, backing through patterns, and demonstrating trust while navigating “spooky” objects. “VHRC” elements also include classic foundations of equitation with gait/lead changes, work on the diagonals, and flexion. The top four teams will share $5,500 in cash with the winner receiving the coveted title of Versatile Horse & Rider Competition Champion. The VHRC is open to adult riders of all disciplines and horses of all breeds. Put your skills to the test—or come and cheer on your favorite contestants in this exciting, fast-paced event! Competition applications will be accepted through September 8. At the end of a great day of learning and shopping at Equine Affaire there can be no better way to cap off the day than to settle into a seat to enjoy the very best in equine entertainment—and you can do that at the Fantasia—Equine Affaire’s magical and musical celebration of the horse. The Fantasia, sponsored by Absorbine, will take place at 8:00 p.m. on Thursday-Saturday in the coliseum and offer unforgettable performances by some of the foremost equine and equestrian entertainers in the country. From the exhilarating derring-do of Bobby Kerr and his mustangs to mesmerizing Lusitanos taking flight in airs above the ground, the theatrical showmanship of Piratecostumed Friesians, and the natural beauty of horses performing at liberty with worldrenowned trainer and entertainer Sylvia Zerbini, the 2017 Fantasia will be a feast for the senses. The Fantasia is a twohour choreographed spectacle of horsemanship and showmanship that never fails to leave Standing Room Only audiences singing along to musical scores from country to classical to contemporary and leaving with full hearts and renewed conviction in the beauty, nobility, strength and devotion of continued on page 10

The story.

The proof.

Twiggy took Purina’s Feed Greatness™ Challenge and made the switch from a national competitor’s brand to Purina® IMPACT® Professional Performance, gaining weight and improving body condition in just 60 days. The owner says this 2-year old cutting horse has never looked better. We couldn’t agree more.

Equine Affaire’s Fantasia To Again Present Three Spectacular Nights of Equestrian Adventure IT’S THE KIND OF NEWS THAT MAKES a horse lover’s heart sing. Once again Equine Affaire is pleased to confirm three consecutive nights, November 9-11, of its blockbuster “musical celebration of the horse” known and loved as the Fantasia at the Eastern States Exposition in W. Springfield, MA. The Fantasia is a choreographed spectacle of showmanship that never fails to leave standing-room-only audiences singing along to musical scores from country to classical to contemporary, and leaving with full hearts and renewed conviction in the beauty, nobility, strength, and devotion of the horses and ponies that share our lives. From the exhilarating derring-do of Bobby Kerr and his mustangs to mesmerizing Lusitanos taking flight in airs above the ground, the theatrical showmanship of Pirate-costumed Friesians, and the natural beauty of horses performing at liberty with world-renowned trainer and entertainer Sylvia Zerbini, the 2017 Fantasia will be a two-hour feast for the senses that will be the perfect way to cap off a day of shopping at the largest allhorse trade show of its kind and taking in Equine Affaire’s array of educational forums, clinics, and demonstrations. Historically drawing sold-out crowds nightly to the Eastern States Exposition’s historic Coliseum, the Fantasia is the equestrian entertainment cornerstone of Equine Affaire. The show is again generously underwritten by Absorbine, aka the W.F. Young Company, which was founded

in 1892 in nearby East Longmeadow by Mary Ida and Wilbur Young as they developed a humane method of treating lameness in their own beloved horses. Absorbine celebrates its own milestone this season with 125 years of caring for animals. The Fantasia will start nightly at 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, with doors opening at 7:15 p.m. Tickets are just $14 to $25 and are available online at equineaffaire.com or by contacting Equine Affaire. Advance tickets are on sale through November 7; any remaining tickets are then available for purchase at Equine Affaire starting at 9:00 a.m., Thursday, November 9, at the
