July 6-12, 2015 - Horse highlights

Horse lovers throughout the Upper Midwest are tacking up for hosts of equestrian events for the first full week of July. Top choices include barrel racing, breed shows, dressage shows, equine performances, horsemanship clinics, hunter/jumper competitions, open pleasure shows, rodeos, schooling shows, speed shows and gymkhanas, training clinics, and more.

The week’s horse happenings are listed chronologically for easy reference.

This listing is not exhaustive, although it is aimed at announcing as many Upper Midwestern equestrian events as possible for the specified period. Show bills and additional information may be obtained directly from event hosts or organizers.

Advance sign-ups, enrollments, stall deposits, registrations, vendor contracts, and other arrangements are required for many of these equine events. Current negative Coggins test results and veterinary certificates are musts for traveling horses – particularly if equines cross state lines. Horse show, training clinic, and other equine event hosts may choose to bar entry to horses arriving on their properties without appropriate documentation. Haulers and horse owners are urged to investigate such requirements ahead of time.

Equine event changes or cancellations are always a possibility. Auditors, horse owners, riders, trainers, volunteers, vendors, spectators, and others are urged to confirm Upper Midwest horse happening details before going.
