The Horse Breeders and Owners Conference is a must-attend event for horse breeders, owners and riders. This “mid-winter horseman’s escape” is celebrating its 31st anniversary this January 11-13 in Red Deer, Alberta, at the Sheraton Red Deer (previously the Capri Centre).
The Horse Breeders and Owners Conference starts at 7pm on January 11th with an "Open Barn" reception in the Exhibit Hall. This year, the “Open Barn” reception is free for anyone to attend, socialize, network and look around the equine trade show, which boasts over 60 sponsor booths. Frank Merrill will kick off Saturday morning’s session at 8:40 am. Saturday evening provides a chance to network and socialize with wine, dessert and live entertainment provided by Albertan cowboy and singer Matt Robertson. The conference continues until Sunday afternoon, which closes with the Fred Pearce Memorial Lecture given this year by Dr. Temple Grandin.
