The Evening Extravaganza is always a highlight to end a full day of shopping, presentations, lectures, and clinics at Can-Am. The Saturday and Sunday shows will be co-hosted by Shaun Johnston, the actor who plays Grandpa Jack of Heartland on CBC.
This year’s featured entertainer is North America’s most well-known wild Mustang whisperer, trainer, and entertainer, Bobby Kerr. The show will feature his very well-trained Mustangs, and other four-legged friends to entertain and showcase how multi-talented this breed of horse can be. If you have yet to see Bobby in action, you’re in for a treat and are sure to be smiling and laughing throughout the performance.
The Canadian Cowgirls will also perform during the show, dazzling the audience with their musical performance.
Don’t forget to put your paws together for the WoofJocks Canine All Stars and their fast-paced dogs who will compete in a series of obstacles. A purely entertaining experience, designed to introduce kids to the magic of the horse, this is a show you won’t want to miss!
