Verde Valley Equine Festival 2017
April 21, 22, and 23, 2017
Sponsored by

The 2016 Verde Valley Equine Festival was a rousing success. Attendees were lucky enough to learn from over 40 different clinicians and trainers from all over the state of Arizona, as well as some from California and New York! Clinic topics ranged from how to drive your donkey to basic horse safety, obtaining softness to proper health care for your horse.  

The three participation clinics were well attended and enjoyed by the spectators as well as the participants.  Three very full days of learning, shopping and good food in the Verde Valley. Be sure not to miss this annual event in Cottonwood, Arizona next April 21st, 22nd, and 23rd.   

The 2016 Arizona Horsemanís Challenge Champion is J.J. Anderson! This year was a new era in this colt starting championship, as halter broke mustangs from the Florence holding facility were used. Trainers had only eight hours over the three days to build a relationship and train the mustangs to the best of their ability. All the trainers did a good job creating a great start with these young mustang mares. The partnership between Mustangs of America and the Verde Valley Equine Festival is a great one. The mustangs were auctioned off at the end of the event, and all five of the mares were adopted, going to new homes to continue their training. Donít miss this annual event that will return to the Verde Valley Fair Arena in April of next year.
