According to the information below the break (along with a convenient screencap of the original announcement), almost definitely so.

It's a well known fact that at least 75% of Rainbow Dash Network's users live in the city of Calgary, apparently the 6th most livable city according to some study I found on Wikipedia a couple months ago, so one can fairly assume that as said site's web developer RedEnchilada lives in or somewhere near that city. This would rather conveniently fill the somewhat urgent need for a pony convention in Canada's best province and gives me the excuse of living close enough to a con to warrant attending one, which already puts this miles ahead of the Glad Brony Gallopedia or whatever that one con Ren Haru keeps shilling is called.
Some might question the steep admission price, but one must remember that Albertans are apparently richer than everybody else and that's about amount we typically pay for an ice cream cone, and maybe he'll offer a discount if you're one of his friends or show staff or something. Even if this does sound a lot, conventions are quite expensive (as our good friend Purble Tunker has pointed out countless times) and he has to pay the special guests and whatnot, so the high entry price is kind of reasonable when you realize that this is a brony convention like no other. You could always just ask a good Albertan friend to chip in if you want to attend but happen to be a cheapskate or spent most of your shekels on your great aunt's wedding gift, for example.

Sadly we cannot confirm anything about the guests or the convention's actual date, but chances are, HorseCon will be the kind of thing that the fandom has been awaiting for with baited breath ever since the first Friendship is Magic friends were made on /co/. You can also follow @RedEnchilada on Twitter or RDN for further updates on this delightful little con, if you so desire.
