Utah Trainer’s Challenge Now Open 

to Trainers from Other States

 

December 2013 issue  

 

     The Utah Horse Council Trainer’s Challenge has been a huge part of the Utah Horse Expo for the last five years – and an audience favorite! This year, for the first time, the Trainer’s Challenge is open to horse trainers from all states, including Utah . And, trainers who specialize in English disciplines are also encouraged to join in the fun.

     Trainers can bring any horse to the Semi Finals, to be held January 11, 2014, at the Golden Spike Event Center in Ogden , Utah . Four finalists will be chosen and will be provided with untrained two-year-old colts, to be trained over the 60 days leading up to the Utah Horse Expo.

     The Finals will be held at the Utah Horse Expo, March 14-16, 2014, at the Salt Lake County Equestrian Park in South Jordan, Utah .  

 

Utah Horse Council Trainer's Challenge

     Utah Horse Trainer’s Challenge finalists will show their horses on Friday, Saturday and Sunday in four classes:

 

1) Ranch Riding/Pleasure Riding/Reined Work — demonstrating the horse’s ability to move at a working speed with a rider;

 

2) Trail/Ranch Work — showing a horse’s ability and willingness to perform tasks during the course of a normal day’s ranch work;

 

3) Cow Work — demonstrating the ability of a working ranch horse to rein and handle cattle for the rider’s advantage;

 

4) English Versatility (not mandatory) — allows horse and rider to demonstrate riding skills, tack and attire in an English discipline setting;

 

or 4) Free Category — an opportunity for horse and rider to demonstrate talents and strengths not listed in the other categories.  

 

 

     Following those classes will be a question-and-answer period and a Final Challenge. Both the audience and a panel of three judges will decide the winner of $5,000 in cash and $7,500 in rewards.

     Deadline to register for the Utah Trainer’s Challenge (with a $100 fee) is December 15, 2013.

     For more information, call 801-627-6471 or 801-386-3773. Trainer Challenge entry forms are online at utahhorsecouncil.com.
