Horse Discovery Zone
Free throughout the entire event, the Triple Crown Horse Discovery Zone features fun, interactive, and educational displays. Get up close and personal in the Runza Gallery of Breeds with a variety of horses including the teeny-tiny minis to the enormous Percheron, Luke. Join us in exploring the history of our relationship with our equine friends and learning about the different styles of riding. Watch live demos in the Colorado State University Demo Arena and see horses on the silver screen at the Mutual of Omaha Bank Theater.
Equimania! sponsored by the Kiewit Corporation features stations to teach you everything you've ever wanted to know about the inside and outside of the horse! The Omaha Children's Museum, the Henry Doorly Zoo, Union Pacific and the Durham Museum will also be on hand with more fun and interactive spaces.
