Mid-West Horse Fair Names New General Manager

Madison, WI – Lee Sacket and Troy Brick-Margolofsky, co-chairs of the Midwest Horse Fair Advisory board, are honored to introduce the new General Manager for the Midwest Horse Fair, Rhonda Reese.  The 29th Annual Midwest Horse Fair will be held April 18th-20th, 2008 at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, WI.  “We are expecting that next year’s show will be even better with Rhonda in charge”, says Lee Sacket.  “This year we had 50,000 plus attendees during the country’s top 3-day horse fair and we are expecting even more exhibitors and visitors during the 2008 show!”

The Midwest Horse Fair is owned by the Wisconsin State Horse Council, Inc.  All proceeds from the Fair are returned to the WSHC and are used to represent and foster a unified equine industry in Wisconsin, promote the equine through leadership, education, service and communication, and to take a proactive role in the future growth and development of the equine industry. 


The horse industry has a total impact of $112.1 billion on U.S. Gross Domestic Product, including providing 1.4 million full time jobs and paying $1.9 Billion in taxes. Racing, showing and recreation each contribute more than 25% to the total value of goods and services produced by the industry. There are 7.1 million Americans involved in the industry as horse owners, service providers, employees, and volunteers.

The Midwest Horse Fair is governed by an Advisory Committee composed of seven elected individuals volunteering their wisdom and expertise. The office is staffed by a General Manager and an Event Coordinator. Eleven Management Team members work on specific aspects of the Fair year-round. In addition, there are 350 fine people who volunteer at the Fair each year. These volunteers generously offer their time and talent because they believe in what we do and they want to be a part of this flourishing event.

The 29th Annual Midwest Horse Fair will be held at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, WI, April 18-20, 2008. For more information please call 920-623-9114.
