Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society is looking forward to seeing you at the 2021 Bluebonnet Expo & Training Challenge. We would like to remind everyone that attendance in person is voluntary and the decision of whether or not to attend is yours.  Depending on what the COVID guidelines are closer to the time of the event, we might be re-evaluating restrictions. Please check back closer to the event for any updates. 

If you are positive for COVID-19, please do not attend the Expo. If you have COVID-19 symptoms, including fever, dry cough, fatigue, sore throat, body aches, headaches, nasal congestion, etc., please do not attend the Expo unless you have taken a COVID-19 antigen or PCR test within 48 hours of the start of the Expo and received a negative result.   Instant self-administered antigen tests, such as the BinaxNow, Ellume, and others are available at retail pharmacies like Walgreens and CVS. PCR tests are available at medical clinics, laboratories, and pharmacies throughout the U.S.A. Antibody tests should not be done, as they cannot distinguish between past and current infections. If you test positive, you should not attend the Expo and follow CDC guidance, as well as consult with your medical provider.

Shop at the Expo

The live auction at the Bluebonnet Horse Expo will feature saddles, artwork and other new and gently used items. Proceeds from the live auction will help care for the horses of Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society.

We have begun collecting items for the live auction. We would like to receive new and gently used saddles, farm/ranch equipment, harness or carts, etc. We are working to have this horse or stock trailer for the 2019 Live Auction!

Email Jenn if you would like to donate items. Donations are tax-deductible since Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society is a 501(c)(3) organization.

Sponsor the Expo

Bluebonnet Horse Expo sponsors allow us to put on a great expo. Funds from sponsorships pay for the cost of facility, cost of advertising and the myriad expenses that go into putting on a great event. Money raised during the event supports the horses of Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society: it pays vet bills, farrier bills, costs of investigating neglect reports, costs of seizing horses, costs of preparing for court and more. Our goal is to pay all necessary expenses with sponsorships – so that all the money raised the day of the event can go to helping us help horses.

Sell at the Expo

Be a vendor. We’re looking for people who sell horse-related products and services as well as crafts and home decor to be vendors. Vendor spaces start at $50 and get your product and services in front of hundreds of attendees.

Help at the Expo

It takes a lot of volunteers to help set up the Expo on Friday and run the Expo on Saturday. If you are interested in volunteering for at least four hours on either of those days, you’ll get admission to the Expo for free. For information on volunteering, email us.
