Stallion Exhibitors will receive a stall in the Barn Stabling area which can house him the entire weekend. You will also get a hospitality/tack stall adjacent to him, to display pictures, awards & advertising materials about your horse, the breed or ranch.
Your stallion will be listed on our website with a great picture provided by you, his breed, the ranch name and website or contact #. A 25% Discount to advertise in our Show program will be given, extra charge for ad creation would apply.
The Idaho Horse Expo will have a stallion preview in the Main Arena where you can choose to participate in. A Round Pen will be placed close to the stalls, which will be available for preview of your stud to customers and for exercising to get him out of the stall.

The Runaway Hamsters (TRH) Tribe will be performing at the Idaho Horse Expo evening program and through out the day meet them up close and personal at the Kids Corral!
"We truly got our start as TRH by helping a friend who had cancer. We recorded a simple song, had CDs made which we sold to raise money that was donated to the hospital caring for our friend. Our story got picked up nationally and we began to get calls from all over the country. We were interviewed on radio stations & media from coast to coast and eventually producers approached us to make an album. We chose to work with Kent Wells Productions in Nashville (Dolly Parton's producer). Kent connected us with songwriters and has also written with us himself. He shares our vision, passion and love for music."
Now ages 14 and 12, TRH released their new single "Go" on June 1, 2018 just in time for their appearances at CMA fest in Nashville. Their new EP will follow on the footsteps of this fun new single.
TRH produced their first official EP in 2015 and their second release "A Little Country" was released June 1, 2016. TRH creates music that is original, engaging and heartfelt. Their lyrics can be touching with a dose of humor with the aim of leaving the listener happy. You will be smiling if you take the time to enjoy! TRH has been involved with music from a very early age starting with piano lessons, which began at 3 years old. They all love to write, and each plays a variety of instruments. They all like to help others. Their hastag is #wehelpfriends!
TRH has been busy for a group so young. Their past major performances included opening for Andy Grammer at Baldapalooza in Boise, ID, performing in Nashville, TN at the world famous Bluebird Café and a headline performance at the LA Zoo for Dreamnight. They are also very philanthropic, having helped raise money for several years with the Children's Miracle Network Dance Marathon @ Boise State University and as Junior Ambassadors for the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles.
