EquiMania!'s Education Centre will be off and running at the Can-Am Equine Emporium, Agriplex, London, Ontario, March 16-19, 2006. Horse crazy youth are invited to join us and enjoy the interactive learning resources located between the Agriplex arena and auditorium during regular show hours. Horse crazy adults are not to worry, you are welcome too.

"Our goal is to encourage youth to become interested in horses, through learning about health, disease prevention and management in a fun and interactive environment." said Gayle Ecker, Senior Manager. "EquiMania!'s Education Centre is a wonderful complement to Saturday's EquiMania! Quiz Challenge.” Youth will be able to test their knowledge at EquiMania!'s Quiz Challenge on Saturday, March 18, 2006. To see last year's excitement.

EquiMania!'s Education Centre will be hitting the road with scheduled stops this summer at the Schomberg Fair (May 27), Woodbine Racetrack, (weekends through July and August) and Grand River Raceway (August 7). Visit the EquiMania! website for more information on these and other upcoming events.
