Gear Up for the Spectacular Horse Expo 2024

Mistico Equestrian Centre

Saddle up and mark your calendars because the highly anticipated Horse Expo 2024 is just around the corner! Set to take place on Saturday, 17 February 2024, at the stunning Mistico Equestrian Centre, near Paarl. This year’s event promises to be bigger and better than ever before. What makes this year even more special is the partnership between the Equinox Trust and the South African Lipizzaners, as the event now supports not one, but two non-profit organizations.

The Horse Expo 2024 boasts an exciting lineup that will leave horse enthusiasts and newcomers alike in awe. Highlights include the mesmerizing Dancing Lipizzaners, heart-pounding mounted archery displays, a breathtaking pas de deux performance by Dawn Newman and Lisa Stemmet, a stunning Lusitano display, and captivating presentations by Monte Cavalo Livery and Stud (performed by Monte Cavalo Stud Farm), the South African Quarter Horse Association, and Mounted Games by the Mounted Games Association of South Africa.

But that’s not all! The event has expanded its vendor capacity, welcoming not only equestrian-related products but also non-horsey items and services. It’s a shopper’s paradise, featuring a wide range of vendors to explore.

Foodies won’t be disappointed either, with an array of delectable options from food vendors. You can also gallop into Bit and Bridle Restaurant for a wide range of choices, from breakfast delights to light meals, platters, juicy burgers, and mouthwatering pizzas – they’ve got it all.

And for the true equestrian enthusiasts, don’t miss the all-day Farrier and Blacksmithing competition run by The Southern Africa Association of Professional Farriers. Horse Expo 2024 promises an unforgettable day of entertainment, shopping, and culinary delights.
