Is the Mane Event Horse Expo Going Out of Business?

With vendors not being paid, venues not booked, and fraud and bankruptcy surrounding their sales manager Ronald Barker, the Mane Event Expo not looking good.

  • Chilliwack Heritage Park has not received any deposits or reservations to hold the venue for the October 2018 Mane Event Expo, yet the Mane event is still selling tickets.
  • The Mane Event's insurance company has sent out notices to their event venues that their bill was not paid and they will be cutting off their insurance.
  • The event rental company for last year's show in Chilliwack, BC, has served Ron and Gail Barker with papers for not paying for last year’s event to the tune of $9000.00.
  • The event rental company for the March 2018 show in Scottsdale, AZ still has not been paid in full for over $6000 in services.
  • We have received emails from past trainers and clinicians who have not been paid.
  • In 2005, Ron Barker of the Mane Event, received a lifetime market ban for defrauding investors.
