IHC/ 2020 IHF Committees
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: MARCH 16th, 2020
THE IOWA HORSE FAIR FOR 2020 TO BE HELD AT THE IOWA STATE FAIRGROUNDS IN DES MOINES IOWA APRIL 3RD – 5TH, THE LARGEST FUNDRAISER OF THE IOWA HORSE COUNCIL ORGANIZATION, HAS UNFORTUNATELY BEEN CANCELLED AT THIS TIME.
It is with our deepest regrets that the 2020 Iowa Horse Fair has been instructed by the Iowa State Fairgrounds to cancel this event in accordance with their decision to support community actions for containment of the COVID-19 virus set forth by Iowa Governor Reynolds and the CDC recommendations.
While we know this action will disappoint vendors, spectators, riders, clinicians, and performers, the cancellation of this event is in the best interest of the public and the City of Des Moines.
We ask for your patience while the committee’s sort through the paperwork to issue refunds. You DO NOT need to contact us as we all will work diligently to have them processed by March 31st.
If you choose to donate your fees already paid to 2020 IHF, simply notify us of this request and we can send you a tax -deductible receipt.
We sincerely apologize to all for this inconvenience as this has been difficult for all of our planning committees that have volunteered countless hours of their personal time to ensure the Horse fair event was a success for 2020.
We look forward to your support in 2021!
