Public Invited to First-Ever Horse Expo at Frying Pan Farm Park

Experienced riders, plus people who have never seen a horse in person, are all invited to the Horse Expo at Frying Pan Farm Park on Saturday, April 30, 2022 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The program is free, but guests are asked to register in advance.

“For a long time, Frying Pan Farm Park has been a staple of the local horse community, hosting horse shows here in Herndon for more than 40 years. We want the Horse Expo to introduce new people to horse-related sports and activities and be a networking opportunity for equestrians and the businesses that serve them,” Frying Pan Farm Park Manager Nicole Mitchell said.

The Horse Expo will include food trucks, speakers, a parade of horse breeds, horse-related products and services, and demonstrations by groups, such as the Topaz Vaulters, whose riders perform gymnastics on the backs of moving horses.

“This will be a great opportunity for parents to learn about horse-related sports their children can get involved in, such as dressage, hunter-jumping, mounted archery and western riding,” Mitchell said.

The park plans to have roving “equine ambassadors” on hand to answer questions. Horse experts will also give talks, such as “What to Do When Your Child Asks for a Pony,” presented by Clover Brooke Stables owner Amy Fries, and “Equine Chiropractic and Acupuncture,” presented by Dr. Laurel Marley, DVM, CVA, VSMT.
