Welcome to the Horse Progress Days 2016.

The local planning group welcomes you to the 23rd annual Horse Progress Days to be held at the Michiana Exposition Center just off of the Interstate 80/90 toll road on State Route 9 north of Howe, Indiana. The purpose of Horse Progress Days is to bring together in one place the latest newly manufactured horse drawn farming equipment, showing the latest inventions and innovations built into it as well as various hitching techniques. There will be educational seminars and clinics for those who want to learn more about horse farming and for those just getting started. The hope is that you will be able to broaden your knowledge by watching the field demonstrations of tillage, haymaking, produce farming, logging, and more as you observe equipment being pulled by one, two, four, six, and up to twelve horses.

Bring the whole family to this event; there is truly “Something for Everyone”. Please check back for additional information as it becomes available.

Admission to the 2016 Horse Progress Days will be $10.00 per day. Children 12 and under are free when attending with an adult.

Mission Statement:
