Live Rodeo Roping Demo - Horsepower vs. Horsepower
COEE Attendees will learn from some the province's most talented rodeo ropers about the fundamentals of horsemanship involved in rodeo event competition, in addition to the intricacies of "lasso swinging" for the Breakaway, Tiedown and Team Roping event disciplines.
This live demonstration will feature the talented rodeo athletes horseback in the ring, competing against a "robotic steer" and an innovative "mechanical calf".
Watch the ropers and their mounts and they race after and wrangle up the faux-livestock on the run - behind an ATV.
Presented by the Ontario Rodeo Association and Roping Association of Ontario.

Interactive Roping Display
Ever want to try your hand at being a real cow-hand?  Before you hop on the horse, learn from the ground up.  Visit the Interactive Roping Display where you will have your chance to learn the basics of "lasso-ing" an imitation calf (bale of straw with calf-head attached) under the direction of some of the industry's best roping instructors and competitors.
Presented by the Ontario Rodeo Association and Roping Association of Ontario.

Canada's Outdoor Equine Expo

Last year, we ventured to the first Canada's Outdoor Equine Expo and took in a number of clinics, demos, tradeshows and more.  We had an awesome experience view the blog posting here.

This event is really strong on Social Media and attendees can follow the event's pre-show releases and updates during the event on Facebook and especially on Twitter.  To follow and partake in the conversation, the twittersphere is invited to use the hashtags #COEE and #ONhorse

Scrumptious Pulled Pork Parfait at #COEE

The event is 3 days of full demos, trade shows, entertainment and scrumptious food.  If anything, it's worth the drive to Iron Horse Equestrian Centre (Burlington, Ontario) to try the Pulled Pork Parfait alone...haha.

Check out the full flyer here to see what clinicians, demos and displays will comprise this year's Canada's Outdoor Equine Expo.
