January 4-10, 2016 - Horse highlights

The first full week of 2016 brings a few horse highlights to the Upper Midwest. Take a look at these equestrian events on the books from Monday, January 4, through Sunday, January 10. Most of this week’s listings are indoor events. (The sleigh rally is outdoors, of course!)

As always, equestrians, exhibitors, vendors, volunteers, and other attendees are exhorted to contact event hosts or organizers directly for show bills, flyers, or additional information. Many of these equestrian events require advance sign-ups. This roster, though perhaps not exhaustive, includes as many Upper Midwestern horse highlights as possible for the specified period.
