Thank you to the 2019 Bluebonnet Horse Expo Sponsors – you allowed us to put on an awesome event.
This year has been an unprecedented year with challenges for everyone, but at Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society, we’re still helping horses. And we’ve now added programs to help horse owners who are affected by COVID-19 to keep their horses. We want to keep on helping horses, but we need your help.
Since 2007, we’ve held the Bluebonnet Horse Expo each October, and in 2009 we added the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge. This event draws horse lovers from across Texas to meet and support rescue horses, learn from talented equine professionals, shop, and have fun. Each year, the Expo and Challenge raises between a quarter and a third of the money we need to care for horses in our rescue that year, and the event also helps find homes for 25-40 formerly abused, neglected, or abandoned horses.
Unfortunately, COVID-19 is threatening the Bluebonnet Horse Expo – and this is a huge problem for Bluebonnet and the horses we help. We had to cancel our spring fundraising event and hold the Training Challenge portion as a virtual competition. Our general donations are also down by about 50%. We need a successful Expo to continue helping horses and helping their owners.
We are in close contact with the Williamson County Expo Center and are monitoring all applicable guidelines. We’ve come up with several different scenarios to put into place depending on the severity of the pandemic in October. We’re doing everything we can to have a safe, healthy, and fun event.
We’re hoping that even though the 2020 Expo is uncertain, you’ll still become a sponsor. By becoming a sponsor, you’ll be helping starved and abused horses get a second chance at life. You’ll also receive advertising opportunities at the event (if we are able to hold it), on our website, on our social media, and in our newsletter.
Please help us put on another excellent horse Expo – in whatever form it may take this year. The horses and humans at Bluebonnet as will horse lovers from across Texas and beyond will thank you!
Sponsors of the 2020 Bluebonnet Expo will be added as received.

Bluebonnet Horse Expo sponsors allow us to put on a great expo. Funds from sponsorships pay for the cost of facility, cost of advertising and the myriad expenses that go into putting on a great event. Money raised during the event supports the horses of Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society: it pays vet bills, farrier bills, costs of investigating neglect reports, costs of seizing horses, costs of preparing for court and more. Our goal is to pay all necessary expenses with sponsorships – so that all the money raised the day of the event can go to helping us help horses.
