In Texas, horses are very admired and well taken care of. In the Bryan-College Station area specifically, horses are even a significant part of Texas A&M, with the great equestrian team and Parsons Mounted Cavalry. This year, the Texas A&M Equine Initiative and Time to Ride will be hosting the 2nd Annual Aggie Horse Fair on December 9th.
Located at the Thomas G. Hildebrand, DVM ’56 Equine Complex, the Aggie Horse Fair will be full of fun for the whole family. There will be different exhibitions of horses, where you can pet the animals and maybe even ride them. Sully, a loveable mini horse, will be in attendance. Sully is the smallest member of the Texas A&M Equestrian Team, but he might be the most popular. You will not find Sully performing much, but he sure does cheer on the team.
The main purpose of this event is to help the public to learn more about horses. Horses are extraordinary animals, but many do not know that much about them. It is a great and fun way to be educated about an animal that is so relevant in the Bryan-College Station area.
This is a great opportunity to bring the kids out for a great time. There will be several different contests and various booths will be located around the complex, with information about horses and other Texas A&M student organizations. The crowd is very friendly, so if you go do not be afraid to participate in the games they have to offer.
If you work up an appetite while you are there, don’t worry. Some great local food trucks will be present for you to try out some delicious meals. There will even be hourly giveaways. All that, and admission is free!
If you love horses or would just like some educational fun, the come out to the Equine Complex from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to learn about all the Brazos Valley Equine community has to offer.
