Have you ever been to a horse show? People of all ages have horses. They spend a lot of time throughout the year riding and training their horses. Horse shows are a chance to compete with those horses to show off the skills they have learned. The Red River Valley Horse Show Association has been holding an open class horse show during the Fair for years.
A wide variety of classes, or competitions, will be held throughout the day. They include obedience classes, classes to show off specific skills, and athletic competitions. Many classes are broken down by competitor's ages or skill level. There are classes for English style and Western. The horse show runs all day on Sunday of the Fair in the horse arena at the west end of the Fairgrounds.
