Fun and interactive horse show is FREE to enjoy before the CNE officially opens its gates.
The fun of the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) gallops into Toronto early with HorseCapades, a delightful and interactive program that introduces fans of all ages to the wonder of horses. In its 10th consecutive year, HorseCapades returns to the CNE beginning July 27, 2014, at the Horse Place, Exhibition Place. It offers visitors the chance to pet and feed horses, learn about grooming and shoeing, guess a horse’s weight, meet a mare and foal, as well as enjoy a horse-drawn wagon ride.
NEW this year, HorseCapades is expanding to include a spectacular trick-riding show, HorsePower Live!, debuting on July 27. Set to original music, HorsePower Live! showcases the pageantry, power, and precision of riders and horses performing remarkable feats such as barrel racing, trick riding, roping, and hip hop dressage in the Horse Palace Ring.
“HorseCapades and HorsePower Live! bring the enchantment of horses to the heart of the city,” says David Bednar, CNE General Manager. “Families don’t have to travel far to enjoy a taste of the rural life and get up close with one of nature’s most intelligent animals. It’s fun, educational, and a great way to spend the day indoors – not to mention it’s free for everyone!”
HorseCapades is truly a fun and affordable outing for the entire family, individuals and groups to escape the city life. Groups of 10 or more people are asked to make reservations by emailing email@example.com, or go to www.TheEX.com for more information.

Artworks from “Over the Rainbow” are drawn from the collection of Salah Bachir and Jacob Yerex.
Featured artists include Stephen Andrews, Attila Richard Lukacs, Public Studio, Justine Kurland, Betty Goodwin, General Idea, Andy Fabo, Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Annie Leibowitz, Herb Ritts and many more.
