Horse Expo set for Aug.


The Hawaii Island Humane Society’s sixth annual Hawaii Horse Expo will be held Saturday, Aug. 10, and Sunday, Aug. 11, on the Big Island. Proceeds from the annual event benefit the Humane Society’s Horse Rescue Fund, which helps abused and abandoned horses on the island.

Hawaii Horse Expo attracts world-renowned equine experts who travel from across the mainland U.S. to share their knowledge and skills.

Anyone interested in horses and in building on their own awareness in a variety of horse-related disciplines is invited to attend the Expo. Clinics and demonstrations held throughout the two days always include the opportunity for personal interaction with the experts.

Already confirmed for Hawaii Horse Expo 2013 are veterinarian, renowned equine behaviorist and lecturer Dr. Robert Miller; popular host of RFD TV’s “The Horse Show” Rick Lamb; developer of Resistance Free Riding and Resistance Free Training Richard Shrake; and Barrel Racer, National Cowboy Hall of Fame and National Cowgirl Hall of Famer Sharon Camarillo.

Once again, Hawaii Horse Expo is partnering with the Paniolo Preservation Society to co-host the event at the Society’s Paniolo Heritage Center at Pukalani Stables in Waimea. The location allows up to three Expo programs to occur simultaneously in three different settings.

In addition, there will be a wide array of vendors offering state-of-the-art services, medical and nutritional information and programs, and related equine services including clothing, art and more.
