The Minnesota Horse Expo 2016, Nokota® Style by Judy Onufer This year’s Minnesota Horse Expo, held at the State Fair Grounds in St. Paul, was an enormous success for our Nokota® horses, their human partners and for the Nokota Horse Conservancy®. The termexposition derives from the Latin, meaning to show forth. We had a grand weekend of doing justthat…giving our horses the opportunity to show their beauty, intelligence, grace, curiosity andversatility. In attendance were eleven Nokota® horses, a fantastic and impressive turnout. Along withthree breed parades and two breed demonstrations throughout the three day event, we had a steadystream of visitors to our stalls in the horse barn, and countless admirers and fans as we proudly rodeabout the fairgrounds. As our numbers grow in this region, the increased exposure is certainly creating agrowing fan base for our breed. There was a time when the curious might have commonly asked, “What breed is your horse?” This weekend, we heard more questions like, “Can I ask you a few things about your Nokota®? I would really like to learn more.” Yes!
