If you haven’t noticed by now, we love building horse barns. But more than that, we love the people and the horses that live, work and play inside those post-frame structures. That’s why we’re always looking to showcase people and events that will help our customers.
The Minnesota Horse Expo fits that bill. It’s one of the largest equine trade shows in the country, with over 700 trade show booths and an amazing lineup of speakers and presentations.
We’re spotlighting five presenters here, but be sure to visit their website to learn more about the Expo itself and the rest of the speakers!
The Expo takes place on the Minnesota State Fairgrounds April 26-28. Wick Buildings will be there at booth C132 at the Expo. Stop by and ask us about horse barn construction.
We’ll also be at the Midwest Horse Fair April 12-14 in the Exhibition Hall, Booth 3301. See you there!
