Some stars sing, others act, a handful dance, but some of the best prance! Midwest Horse Fair Star Search is a competition of epic proportions designed to find the best horse act from a pool of the most talented equestrians. Only the best will make it to the big stage. Ten Midwest Horse Fair Star Search finalists, five from the Open Division and five from the Youth Division, will perform during Epic Night of the Horse™, the Saturday evening show of the 2017 Midwest Horse Fair®. 

Midwest Horse Fair Star Search finalists will compete for more than $20,000 in cash prizes. The first place winner of the Open Talent Division will be awarded a stunning prize of $10,000, and the first place winner of the Youth Talent Division will be awarded $5,000. Certainly, fame is not the only draw for entries! 

Fans, don’t worry! You will still have a say during the final competition. A crowd of 8,000 audience members will weigh in to help determine the winner of Midwest Horse Fair Star Search by voting with their mobile devices. Finalists should encourage their fans to come out to Epic Night of the Horse™ not only to cheer them on but to cast a vote for their favorite! Social media will be abuzz with the hype!
