Event Details

Every September, 4,300 fox trotter enthusiasts converge on Ava for the Missouri Fox Trotting Horse Breed Association Celebration, featuring about 700 of the gentle, sure-footed horses. Located in the heart of the Ozark Mountains, the town has been associated with the fox trotter since settlers in the region developed the multipurpose breed 150 years ago.

The weeklong competition now is on the association’s nearby 130-acre campus, which includes multiple arenas, 17 barns and 300 campsites. The event offers 178 classes to evaluate the horses’ gaits and body structure, as well as their versatility in competing in barrel racing, pole bending, cattle cutting and English pleasure riding.
