  • February 22-23 beginning at 8 a.m.: Hunter Jumper WinterFest Horse Show 

The Hunter Jumper WinterFest Horse Show welcomes athletes and highly trained horses to showcase their skills at the Claremore Expo’s indoor heated arena. The hunter–jumper division, also known as working hunter classes, is a branch of showing where a horse is judged on its suitability for hunting and its ability to move in a smooth and consistent manner. The horse is judged on jumping, movement, conformation and manners. 

A typical class consists of jumping over natural fences mimicking those you may see in on a hunt field; a ridden show that includes a hand gallop; and a conformation section where the saddle is removed and the horse is asked to walk away from the judge and trot back to evaluate conformation and soundness. This is open to the public and free to come watch. More information can be found at VisitClaremore.org

  • February 29 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.: Daisy BB Gun Day 

Held at the J.M. Davis Arms and Historical Museum, this free event welcomes children 18 and under to shoot in the Daisy Indoor BB Shooting Gallery. The top marksmen in two categories (12 and under and 13-18) will win a custom made Daisy BB rifle. Adults may shoot for a $3 per target charge. The adult winner will also receive a custom Daisy BB rifle. Visit thegunmuseum.com for more information.
