Consult equineaffaire.com for hotel details, updated information on room availability, and information on camping.
Generous Sponsors Make for a Great Equine Affaire Equine Affaire’s extensive program of educational activities and entertainment, and the event’s modest admission fees, are made possible through generous sponsorships by dozens of equine-related companies and organizations. We all extend our sincere gratitude to Farnam®, Rod’s Western Palace, Andis® Company, Royal Mat, Light ‘N Lasting, and the dozens of other companies who have endorsed
the educational mission of Equine Affaire through their sponsorships. Without the financial underwriting of these fine companies, Equine Affaire would not be the quality event that it is.

You can order advance tickets online or through the mail (through March 15). If you’re not web-savvy, our friendly staff will gladly take your call and provide assistance at 740-845-0085, Monday-Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Eastern.
