The next Roses to Ribbons Horse Fair has been scheduled for Saturday, March 14, at Sam Houston Race Park.
At the horse fair, racehorse trainers bring Thoroughbreds ready for a new career up to the saddling paddock. There, prospective buyers can look at a large number of available horses in one place. If a buyer sees a horse that interests them, they make their own deal with the trainer. Some horses are sold right at the event. Other times, prospective buyers will make arrangements to schedule a pre-purchase exam for the horse at a later time. Everything is worked out individually between the buyer and seller. This is not an auction.
Horses arrive in the paddock at 11 a.m. and are available for viewing for the next hour. The event goes on rain or shine. There is no admission charge.
The event is a great opportunity to find a prospect at a reasonable price for any discipline and also features a variety of vendors at the event. Tack and clothing, artists, racehorse re-homing groups and more are set up in the saddling paddock.
