The Wyoming State Winter Fair Horse Show has grown in popularity. Awards, ribbons and prize money for all classes will keep the contest competitive and fun.
This is a great show for youth and adults who are just learning the ropes of horse showing. Over 40 classes are offered at this event so everyone should be able to find a spot to enter their favorite horse or rider.
Besides halter and showmanship classes, the competition has riding classes in both Western and English disciplines, and Reining and other traditional classes.
