FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Feed expert serves up education at Midwest Horse Fair® The Midwest Horse Fair® will welcome feed consultant Juliet M. Getty, Ph.D. to the April 15- 17, 2011 event. Each year this equine expo, held at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wis., brings in an incredible array of top clinicians and exhibitors from all over the country. With the 2011 theme of “StarGrazing,” the Midwest Horse Fair® will be another opportunity to let the stars of the horse industry shine. Based in beautiful rural Bayfield, Colo., Dr. Getty runs a consulting company, Getty Equine Nutrition, LLC, through which she offers private consultations and designs customized feeding plans to promote horses' health, reverse illness, and optimize performance. Dr. Getty has been called a “pioneer in free choice forage feeding,” and her articles and interviews often appear in national and international publications. A former university professor and recipient of several teaching awards, she is a popular speaker, and is author of the book, Feed Your Horse Like a Horse, based on the premise that horses (and other equines) should be fed in sync with their natural instincts and physiology. Horse owners and caretakers hungry for knowledge have several resources, offered by Dr. Getty, for dependable information on feeds and feeding: a growing library of articles and recorded lectures, quizzes to test your nutrition knowledge, plus a monthly e-newsletter, Forage forThought, all available through her website (www.GettyEquineNutrition.com). Her teaching and advice are based on sound science and her more than twenty years as a respected consultant and practitioner in the equine nutrition field. Started in 1979, the Midwest Horse Fair® has been continuously growing, with a strong focus on education and high-quality entertainment for individual horse owners, families, and those who just love horses. Over 500 exhibitors offer unique shopping and educational opportunities.


Demonstrations and ongoing entertainment, along with hundreds of clinics, seminars, and events throughout the weekend, offers something for everyone. The Midwest Horse Fair速 is owned by the Wisconsin State Horse Council, Inc. All proceeds from the Fair are returned to the WSHC and are used to represent and foster a unified equine industry in Wisconsin, promote the equine through leadership, education, service and communication, and to take a proactive role in the future growth and development of the equine industry.

Chicagoland Equestrian Lifestyle Expo set for November 20-21; Organizers ask horsemen to tell them what they want to learn Organizers of the third annual Chicagoland Equestrian Lifestyle Expo & Holiday Market (November 20-21, 2010 at the Lake County Expo Center, Grayslake, IL) are asking people from all segments of the horse industry for suggestions on programming. “We want to hear from competitors, professionals and those who make their living in the business of horses, as well as recreational riders and those just getting into horses,” said Joy Meierhans, who manages Expo for Horsemen’s Council of Illinois. “HCI wants to build on the 50 different presentations offered over the two days of last year’s Expo,” Meierhans said, “which covered such wide-ranging topics as ‘What genomics can tell us about health and disease’ and ‘Nutritional product claims vs. factbased research’ to ‘Overcoming fear by building confidence’ and ‘Equestrian travel – discovering the world upon a horse.’” “As always, Expo will no t have horses on site, but it will feature leading trainers, nutritionists, animal scientists, veterinary specialists and researchers in the forefront of equine understanding,” Meierhans said. To see a complete list of last year’s programming, representative of the type of programming Expo will continue to offer in 2010 and in years to come, go to http://www.horsemenscouncil.org/Expo09/ and find the programming plus a list of participating vendors. Steve Kenyon, communications specialist for the University of Wisconsin’s College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, called last year’s Expo “the best equestrian education opportunity,” he’d ever se en. Kenyon and his wife participated in a hands-on session learning about leg wraps, “Different wraps for different reasons.” Suggestions for Expo speakers and topics may be submitted online at www.horsemenscouncil.org/expo. The web site also has a place to sign up for “Updates” to be emailed as Expo nears. In addition to its extraordinary educational emphasis, Expo offers shopping for “all things equestrian” across the new building’s 65,000 square feet of exhibit space. Sponsored by Purina, hours for the all-breed Chicagoland Equestrian Lifestyle Expo & Holiday Market are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Tickets will be available online or at the door: Daily $8, Weekend $14. Parking is free at the Lake County Expo Center, located west of I-94 at the intersection of Peterson & Midlothian Roads in Grayslake. As speakers and programming are finalized, information will be placed on the Expo web . site accessed through www.horsemenscouncil.org/expo 072310

This contest will be based on beauty and the graceful movement of the horse. The World’s Most Beautiful Horse contest is open to all breeds of horses and all horse owners worldwide. While the search initially will begin with a photo contest and public votes via the Internet, the semi-finalists will be invited to the 2011 Midwest Horse Fair®, April 15-17, 2011 at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wis. The red carpet will be rolled out at the 2011 event with the theme of “StarGrazing.” The stars of the horse world will shine with the many high-quality clinicians, exhibitors, and events that are planned for the 2011 Midwest Horse Fair®.
