The Portage Ex returned this past weekend, with tons of people taking in the fun.

It was three days of entertainment, rides, fair food and so much more, as the people of Portage la Prairie celebrated the 150th edition.

Mia Barber is from Rossendale and was taking part in many horse events throughout the weekend.

"I like flag race," says Barber. "You take a flag out of the barrel and you put it to the next barrel, and you kind of just do that until both of the flags are in the one. Then, you go back."

Barber also got third in the Halter event, which involves showing your horses. When asked if she would be taking in any of the rides, she said no. She was all about the horse events!

We will be following up with Heather Greenlay of the Portage Industrial Exhibition Association to discuss the success of the event.
