Equitana USA Cancels 2020 Exhibition


Kentucky Horse Park | James Shanbhu

Equitana USA has canceled its equestrian trade fair and expo, which had been scheduled for Sept. 25 through 27 at the Kentucky Horse Park, due to public safety concerns regarding the coronavirus pandemic. Organizers are already planning for the 2021 event, which is scheduled for Oct. 1-3 at the Horse Park.

“Equitana USA is a shared place and time for all disciplines, breeds, ages and levels of the equine industry,” said Meghan Margewicz, the event’s director. “But the safety of everyone associated with the event is always our first priority. After many discussions with the Kentucky Horse Park, exhibitors, presenters and attendees, we made a difficult, but necessary decision to cancel this year’s celebration and work to create an amazing reunion for everyone in 2021.”

All Equitana USA 2020 ticket holders will be refunded electronically, with no further action by ticket holders required.
