Hawaii Horse Expo has gained a well-deserved reputation for bringing nationally and internationally noted experts to the event. These experts share their knowledge and skills in a variety of horse-related disciplines during clinics and demonstrations that always include the opportunity for personal interaction.

This year, Hawaii Horse Expo is partnering with the Paniolo Preservation Society to co-host the event at the Society’s Paniolo Heritage Center at Pukalani Stables in Waimea. For more than five decades, Parker Ranch’s Pukalani Stables was one of the premier horse breeding and training facilities in the Northern Hemisphere. The excellence of Hawaii Horse Expo is a natural fit for the location.

“Paniolo Preservation Society is honored to welcome Hawaii Horse Expo to Pukalani Stables because in just a short few years, Nancy Jones and her project team have gained the trust and respect of exceptional equine clinicians including Jack Brainard, Kurt Pate, Linda Tellington Jones, Rick Lamb, Dr. Robert Miller, and Richard Winters,” said PPS’ Immediate Past President Robby Hind. Tellington Jones, Miller and Lamb are already confirmed as clinicians for 2012.

Pukalani Stables allows for a new format in 2012 with three Expo programs occurring simultaneously throughout the two days in three different settings. In addition, there will be a wide array of vendors offering state-of-the-art services, medical and nutritional information and programs, saddle making, and related equine services including clothing, art and more.
