Equine Exhibition Manager training

This online course aims to help managers of equine exhibitions in Minnesota more confidently meet state requirements and hold safer exhibitions for horses and attendees. The three modules within this course will cover the responsibilities of equine exhibition managers, the requirements for horses to be exhibited, and how to apply for exhibition permits.

The training is self-paced with each module expected to take 30 minutes to complete. Those who successfully complete the course will earn a certificate valid through January 1, 2025. Managers can use this certificate to support a rule variance petition for MN Administrative Rule 1721.0100, Subpart 4. To receive a certificate, participants must answer correctly 80% of the course quiz questions.


This training for managers of equine exhibitions in Minnesota is part of a pilot program for 2024. The goals of the pilot program are to respond to the concerns of the Minnesota horse show industry while meeting the Minnesota Board of Animal Health’s (BAH) mission of protecting the health of domestic animals through education and cooperation with stakeholders. This course has been developed in collaboration with the Minnesota BAH and University of Minnesota Equine (UMN) Extension Program. BAH is the regulatory body responsible for protecting the health of domestic animals in Minnesota and UMN Extension provides educational resources throughout the state.
