The Safe Horse Project is a partnership of equine organizations and professionals who want to grow the horse industry in Mississippi. We can’t do it alone and hope you can join our efforts by becoming an event sponsor for the 2023 Heart of the Horse Expo! This exciting Expo will feature the finals of a 120 day Trainers Challenge competition, a live Safe Horse Auction of the Challenge horses to approved homes, and equine exhibits and vendors. The horses used for this event will all be untrained, most from rescue situations, and will be transformed by this event into desirable equine riding partners.

A keepsake program/sales catalog will include listings of sponsors’ services and information. This program will be available to all attendees as well as being provided to new horse owners as part of the owner package. This information will also be available to the public leading up to and after the event on our web site and Facebook page.

The sponsorship categories below apply to both cash donations or to the equivalent amount in donated goods or services. Cash helps with the substantial administration costs for travel, horse care, advertising, clinics, and hotels for judges and clinicians, but we would also welcome donations such as catering at clinics, horse feed, hay, prizes, awards, landscape materials and construction of obstacles for the Trainers Challenge events.  It will take a big village to make the Heart of the Horse Expo a successful event, and we welcome your participation!
