Equitana USA, the "World's Fair of Equestrian Sports," held its sixth annual show last weekend in Louisville, Kentucky. The show is dedicated to all breeds of horses and horse fans from around the world, with hundreds of exhibits, entertainment, educational activities, and products and services, and more.
Launched in North America in 1996, this all-breeds exposition is a four-day celebration of the horse, featuring any and every product, activity, service, display and breed imaginable for horse lovers from across the U.S., Canada, and abroad. Over 50,000 people were expected to attend. Photographer Tina Hines was there to capture the weekend, so enjoy!
Performances in several disciplines were given and AQHA sponsored a riding clinic.

One special event for the weekend was a concert by country singer Wynonna Judd.
Looking around you never know what you will see next. Could be a knight in armor, a system for transporting horses, people having fun at the Islandica booth, or Dale Evans advertising "Horses and Hollywood" at the Kentucky Horse Park.
