MADISON (WKOW) — The theme of this year’s Midwest Horse Fair is “40 Years of Legends”.
Thousands of people are in Madison for this big event centered around the league the Equine Industry. New this year is the Mustang challenge — since January, 56 equine trainers have been working with wild mustangs and this weekend will take part in a series of competitions to see who is the top trainer.
The legends being honored this weekend aren’t just the riders but of course the horses.
“We do have a special feature we’re doing this year for the 40 years Legends — we’ve brought in some celebrity horses,” said Megan Hanuszczak, Director of Midwest Horse Fair. “Obviously there’s Equestrian legends but to honor some of those animal legends the horses the star of the event.”
The event here in Madison is one of the largest three day horse fairs in the country.
