Equifest Program 2022


Wow, it’s our 25th Anniversary! Some of the folks on the 2022 committee have served Kansas Horse Council and EquiFest of KS throughout ALL the years. They bring wisdom and experience (and family) to the planning table. A sincere commitment to construct this signature event for Kansas Horse Council, driven by passion to make this a premier event experience for you is what drives these committee members to give selflessly as volunteers. When you see a committee chairperson, please be sure to say Thank You or Great Job!
