CAMDEN, S.C. (AP) -- Horse enthusiasts from across South Carolina saddled up for a day-long event featuring demonstrations and a silent auction.

The South Carolina Horsemen's Association Expo was Saturday at the S.C. Equine Park in Camden.

A jousting team called the Knights of the Guild-East put on a demonstration of knights on horseback. There was also an event featuring tips and activities related to endurance riding and demonstrations on dressage, eventing and therapeutic riding.

Chairperson Trisha Dingle said it helps promote the South Carolina Equine business.

"We are striving to educate people who either want to be involved with horses, or who own horses but want to learn more," Dingle said. "You can see the different activities you can do with your horses. We are actively trying to promote the Equine businesses in South Carolina."

The event capped off with a parade showcasing the different types of breeds.
