Additional Value of Attending

The informative highlight of the trade fair has to be the “Horse & Human” health forum, whose single goal is to improve the relationship between horse and human. The forum is geared towards horse owners, breeders and enthusiasts and although focused on serious topics still provides items for children such as art making and lasso throwing. 

“Horse & Human” embodies the following three keywords: education, training and health. Experts such as osteopaths, blacksmiths, saddlers, riding instructors, doctors, dentists and nutrition experts are all involved in creating an all-comprehensive experience that answers any and all questions a visitor might have. Organisers invite only the best speakers to give specialist lectures on topics such as holistic horse training, horse-assisted coaching, horse-friendly equipment with a scientific background, saddlery and horse therapy.

Another major highlight is the participation of the First German Blacksmith Association, which combines lectures and live blacksmithing demonstrations to create an unforgettable experience for all visitors. Finally, for the whole family there’s the appeal of Pullman City, which creates a living, breathing Western town right there in the exhibition centre with entertainment and shopping. There will be all kinds of shows, events and western clubs ready for you to sign up!
