Harmony Equine Center Hosting Free Expo for Horse Lovers
The Dumb Friends League Harmony Equine Center is hosting the Harmony Horse Expo on Friday, May 31 and Saturday, June 1. This free event will give visitors the opportunity to take guided tours of the beautiful 168-acre property, attend free horsemanship workshops and training demonstrations and meet adoptable horses.
The Harmony Horse Expo is open to horse lovers of all experience and skill levels—from life-long horse owners to people considering adopting their first horse. Attendees will get a firsthand look at how the Harmony Equine Center trains formerly abused or neglected horses to prepare them for adoption. Harmony’s staff of professional horse trainers, along with guest clinicians will cover a variety of topics including training the Harmony way, selecting the right horse, horse ownership 101, equine wellness, saddle fitting, equine assisted therapies and more.
“This free expo is a great opportunity for people to learn from horsemanship experts and see how our training methods at Harmony transform equines into great trail-riding horses, family horses or good companions for other horses,” said Garret Leonard, director of the Dumb Friends League Harmony Equine Center.
The Harmony Horse Expo takes place at the Dumb Friends League Harmony Equine Center, located at 5540 E. Highway 86 in Franktown, Colo. The Expo’s hours are 12 to 5 p.m. on Friday, May 31 and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 1. There is no need to RSVP.

The Dumb Friends League Harmony Equine Center is a private rehabilitation and adoption facility for horses, ponies, donkeys and mules that have been removed from owners’ care by law enforcement authorities. Harmony also accepts privately-owned equines in need of rehoming and serves as a centralized hub where horses from humane societies and rescue groups in the Midwest and southwestern United States can receive training and rehoming.
