OLSEN'S EQUIFEST BUCKS
              What is Olsen's Grain - Arizona EquiFest ? 
    So, there's been all this buzz about "Equifest". But what is it exactly? 
	
    The 12th annual Arizona EquiFest, which features the largest tack swap in northern 
   Arizona and more than 50 vendors showing and/or selling farm animal-related products,
   kicks off Saturday, September 20th at the Prescott Rodeo Grounds.

    Olsen's Grain and Purina Mills will once again sponsor this FREE event!

   EquiFest offers everything from horse  and dog demonstrations to a stick race for 
   the kids and police dog demo.

    There are activities in the Main Arena, the Clinicians Arena, the Indoor Education 
   Center, the Outdoor Education Center and the tack swap in the Mackin Building.
   All-day activities include dutch oven cooking demonstrations, antique tractor displays 
   and a tractor pull and How to Start Your Dog on Cattle. 
   
    Children will have the chance to build a stick horse, participate in a stick horse 
   race, take a barrel train ride and attend a petting zoo. 
   There will also be dummy roping.

    Dan Olsen, one of EquiFest's organizers, said his family started the gathering in 
   2002 as a way to "give something back to the community at large".
   We expect anywhere from 4,000 to 5,000 people to attend.

    EquiFest is here to give back and inform people about the 'latest and greatest' 
   of how to take care of animals.

    Vendor booths (crafts, clothing, jewelry, food and supplies), shopping and 
   concessions will be available throughout the event, while the tack swap is 
   from 9 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
   During the swap, folks market their tack, display it and sell it, with proceeds 
   going back to the seller.
   
    A barrel race and pole-bending jackpot wrap up the day's activities at 4:15 p.m.

    Live activities in the Clinicians Arena focus on demonstrating instructional 
   information about horses in an educational setting.

    The Main Arena also will have demos, but those will center more on an entertainment
   element.
   
    A police dog demonstration inside that arena will showcase how police dogs from
   Yavapai County Sheriff's Office, Prescott police and Prescott Valley police, 
   among other area law enforcement agencies, are used to protect the community.
