MN Horse Expo by Judy Onufer

mnhorseThe Minnesota Horse Expo 2016, Nokota® Style by Judy Onufer                 This year’s Minnesota Horse Expo, held at the State Fair Grounds in St. Paul, was an enormous success for our Nokota® horses, their human partners and for the Nokota Horse Conservancy®. The termexposition derives from the Latin, meaning to show forth. We had a grand weekend of doing justthat…giving our horses the opportunity to show their beauty, intelligence, grace, curiosity andversatility. In attendance were eleven Nokota® horses, a fantastic and impressive turnout. Along withthree breed parades and two breed demonstrations throughout the three day event, we had a steadystream of visitors to our stalls in the horse barn, and countless admirers and fans as we proudly rodeabout the fairgrounds. As our numbers grow in this region, the increased exposure is certainly creating agrowing fan base for our breed. There was a time when the curious might have commonly asked, “What breed is your horse?” This weekend, we heard more questions like, “Can I ask you a few things about your Nokota®? I would really like to learn more.” Yes!

Nokota® Horse Experience - Linton, ND

nokotahorsesThis clinic is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Where else could you go to see herds of 40-60 wild horses in one pasture? Clinic participants will have the unique privilege of observing multiple bands (i.e. a stud with his mares) in their natural environment.

The clinic takes place on the lush North Dakota prairies, which are filled with rolling hills, green grass, and the beautiful Nokota® horses. The area is rich with the history of the Native Americans who lived on the land decades ago. You may even come across evidence of the Native Americans, such as Tee pee rings or a Medicine Wheel. Being there with the horses, and knowing the horses are of the same bloodlines as those who shared their lives with the Native Americans, gives you a sense we are not that far removed from the past.
