Frying Pan Farm Park will host its first-ever horse expo this weekend.
The inaugural event, which takes place on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., will include horse-related demonstrations, speakers, food trucks and businesses selling horse-related products and services.
Park manager Nicole Mitchell said that the new event is in line with the park’s reputation as a staple of the local horse community.
“We want the horse expo to introduce new people to horse-related sports and activities and be a networking opportunity for equestrians and the businesses that serve them,” Mitchell said.
The Topaz Vaulters are also scheduled to perform gymnastics on the backs of moving horses.
Equine ambassadors will be on hand to answer questions, and talks on topics like “What to do when your child asks for a pony” and “Equine chiropractic and acupuncture” are also scheduled.
The park is located at 2709 West Ox Road. Registration is open online, but the program is free.
Competitive carriage driving is also planned, according to the park’s marketing coordinator, Lois Kirkpatrick.
The program is sponsored by the Friends of Frying Pan Farm Park and supported through a grant from the Virginia Horse Industry Board.
The Fairfax County Park Authority operates an equestrian center at the park, which is open to the public for trailer-in school and private rentals.
