The State Fair of Texas offers many great demonstrations throughout the fair for the purpose of agricultural education and entertainment. Below are descriptions of the demonstrations offered in the livestock area.
DALLAS MOUNTED POLICE UNIT is housed in the Pan American barn at the fairgrounds year around. Due to the daily routines involved with the care and upkeep of the horses, fair time barn visitation times vary but are usually accessible most days in the mid afternoon and early evening hours. When open for visitation, officers will be there to meet and greet fairgoers and to answer your questions. Equine demonstrations will also be provided on Thursdays at 3 pm in the ranch arena. FREE.
