Previous Years

2018 Trainer's Challenge

The 2018 Trainer's Challenge kicked off on November 2, 2017. The horses are ranging in age from yearling to teenage that entered. Each of these horses had completed their rehabilitation and were ready to begin that final step towards finding their new homes!  With the addition of the Liberty Class this year, there is an incredible amount of knowledge each and every one of these horses can gain. The Liberty Class is in-hand liberty only, no riding allowed but riding horses can participate.  The Liberty Class is open to all participating horses and is optional, but they had to complete the required events in their regular riding or in-hand class.​ NEW for 2018 shopping, food, music, farm tours, and more! Family fun for everyone!
