What is the Michigan Horse Expo?
The Michigan Horse Expo is one of the top three-day horse expos in the country. It is now held at the Michigan State University Livestock Pavilion in East Lansing, Michigan. The International Stallion Exhibition and Trade Show (Michigan Horse Expo) has been going strong since 1984 and this year 2018 we hope you help us celebrate the 35th annual event!

What is there to do?
The Michigan Horse Expo has something for you to enjoy whether you are a horseless horse lover, a new horse owner, or a seasoned professional. Mare owners have the opportunity to view stallions of different breeds from around Michigan on “Stallion Avenue”. There are dozens of clinics, seminars and educational events conducted by Michigan’s top horse professionals as well as top horse professionals from around the country. There are more than 200 vendor booths providing excellent shopping opportunities for both you and your horse! If you still aren’t impressed, how about the thrilling action of the Michigan High School Rodeo Association’s Friday Night Rodeo. We are also proud to have the uniquely combined mounted sheriff’s posses’ Color Presentation each day and even offer a church service on Sunday Morning. You can view our complete daily schedules here.
