It's our passion to bring UniQue western events
to the world.

 
 
 

We put your customer in the spotlight.

 

It's not about us.  Or you [sorry!]. But only about your customer. We create value for them by connecting our passion to your business purpose.

And by putting your customer in the middle of a great event.

Be it a rider, a spectator, a new vendor, or an enthusiastic visitor. Or whoever else shares our love for unique western events and horses!

 

What we bring to the table.

Four sound legs for your successful event:

  • Horse industry experience - We have organized and managed NRHA, NCHA, NRCHA/ERCHA & FEI events. Starting from putting the schedule together together, selecting judges, setting up a high performance team, creating all necessary forms, managing the financials, running the show, and reporting the results back to the associations.
  • Leading & collaborate - A horse show can only be run by a great team! And everyone brings his or her own set of skills, experiences and personality. We bring the team together, manage the little ups & downs that can and will happen, but always focus on the job at hand and never forget the fun and joy that we all need to make your event a success.
  • Project management, consulting & marketing know-how - In addition we have a profound knowledge how to manage your show as a project from start to finish, consult to create "an event" out of a normal show, and how to bring that to market.
  • Network of experienced partner - Every horseman knows: You are nothing without a good partner! Even more so when organizing an event all around horses. We have a network of experienced partners, starting with show office personnel, announcers, over ground & footing team, cattle crew to photographers & videographers, PR & Marketing experts up to a professional fair company.

We have been involved with organizing horse events from local clinics, regional horse shows to the AmericanA for more than 20 years.

And we have just started!
