Home » Blog » News

The Northwest Horse Fair and Expo 2022, presented by Akins Trailers, is back in the saddle again! The equine extravaganza will gallop into Albany, Oregon, March 25 through March 27, 2022 at the Linn County Fair and Expo Center! The expo will feature top-notch clinics and workshops, exciting equine entertainment, tons of trade show shopping, and a chance to interact with horses – up close and personal – all for one low admission price! Now in its twenty-first year, this family-friendly expo is the perfect event for horse owners and horse lovers of all ages, with something for everyone!


A diverse group of top name equine trainers will present clinics at the expo, for the education and entertainment of spectators! Experts from across the United States include the headline clinician Ken McNabb, presenting Horsemanship clinics; Peggy Cummings providing Connected Riding® clinics; Julie Goodnight teaching Horsemanship; Muffy Seaton, presented by the Northwest Region of the American Driving Society, featuring Driving clinics; and Rod Petersen conducting Drill Team clinics. In addition, radio and on-line TV host of Speaking of Horses, Wayne Williams will host sessions in the conference room.


The Northwest Horse Fair 2022 will bring back the action-packed Colt Starting Challenge USA, for the second year! Experienced horse trainers will work with young, unbroken horses, gentling, saddling and riding them, in just two days! Using their own unique approach and training methods, each trainer will work with the colt they’ve drawn, all working at the same time in the arena. The talented trainers will take turns explaining to the audience what they’re doing and why.  The contestants will be judged on their work with colts, with the competition culminating on the third day of the expo, when the colts will be ridden through a challenging obstacle course!  Applications are being taken now for halter broken colts, as well as trainers who want to participate in the event.  For more information or to enter the Colt Starting Challenge USA competition at the Northwest Horse Fair 2022, go to
