Southern Arizona horse expo

Over 900 people attended the fourth Annual Southern Arizona Horse Expo in Oracle. The two-day event was not only entertaining but also benefitted Mt.VistaSchool and Kristi’s Kids Season of Hope.

Kristi’s Kids received a $600 donation plus a truckload of canned goods for a local food bank and toys for the Toys for Tots program. Kristi’s Kids is KVOA Channel 4’s charitable organization that funds many programs aimed at helping kids.

They have collaborated with the Southern Arizona Horse Expo for the past four years.MountainVistaSchoolreceived $305 dollars. Besides donating to charities, $6,000 in merchandise was given away by vendors and as raffle prizes during the two-day event.

The winner of the grand prize, a $3,000 Circle Y saddle with matching bridle, breast collar and pad was Sue Arreola of Tucson.

This was the second year that the Horse Expo was held at the Southern Arizona Equestrian Center in Oracle. The event draws people from around the state and helps promote the area. This year’s entertainment with the Mini Mystiques and World Champion Mounted Shooter Gary “Bad Dog” Bennett was a hit with the audience.

The “Dance of the Garrocha’ performed by Jamie Drizin and his magnificent horse was a wonderful display of horsemanship.
