Have you ever seen the Wild Mustang Roundups where they challenge cowboys to break a mustang? Well, we’re eventers… (No mustangs involved, I promise!) Announcing the Young Event Horse Challenge!!
We’re pairing our working students this summer with the 3yo’s from our breeding program… Each WS will be assigned one of our homebreds. They will learn to work with young horses from the ground, bringing the along in our program and developing them into young event prospects. At the end of the summer (90 days of training), we’ll have a final showdown where the contest concludes with showing off everything your baby has learned to a panel of guest judges.
The “winner” will receive some great prizes! Even better, we’re hoping to teach the next generation of young horse trainers valuable skills they can use in the future. Not to mention we hope to bring some nice young horses along, and inevitably have a whole lot of fun in the process. So join us to be included virtually over the next couple of months as we jump into the deep end of this exciting project!
(Disclaimer… Included are baby pictures of the participating horses… They are all 3yo and 4yo this year! =)
