While all the events at the SVS Horse Expo will entertain to a degree, the educational aspect of the event is a true rarity. Adequate education is key to understanding and training these majestic hoofed creatures. The expo offers the opportunity for everyone - seasoned riders, breeders,  children and beginners - to take something unparalleled away from the event - knowledge.

Guest speakers will include the industry's top professionals like: equestrian riders, trainers and clinicians. Some clinicians include: Dr. Martin Crabo of Chaparral Veterinary Medical Center; Julie Winkle, a world renowned equestrian and judge and Buddy Uldrikson, a cowboy and horseman who specializes in the breaking and development of young horses.

One of the most jaw-dropping events of the expo is the The Young Horse Free Jump Challenge. This event showcases young horses moving naturally and balanced over sets of obstacles.

The SVS Horse Expo  is adamant about finding ways to make the event benefit the local community. This year, the expo continues to the raise the bar by supporting five local charities: the Phoenix Dream Center, Horses Help, Canter Arizona, Just World International and Scottsdale Community College.

All of the proceeds each charity raises will go directly to that charity. Last year the Phoenix Dream Center, which benefits foster children in Arizona, auctioned off a live, mini spotted donkey that sold for $15,000!
