2013 Road to the Horse Goes Wild

Road to the Horse is turning world championship dreams into reality with the Road to the Horse Wild Card Competition.

Road to the Horse the World Championship of Colt Starting, a challenging competition between horses and trainers, opens the door to the future of horsemanship. Producer Tootie Bland is presenting the opportunity for horsemen and horsewomen to compete at Road to the Horse by becoming a Road to the Horse Wild Card. Wild Card contestants will begin their journey at the 2013 event by choosing a partner from the AQHA Remuda from the 6666 Ranch and return to Road to the Horse 2014 to compete in the Wild Card competition for a dream-come-true opportunity. The Wild Card winner will immediately step into the final round pen and compete for the coveted 2014 Road to the Horse World Championship of Colt Starting title.

“We know there is an abundance of talent in the horsemanship world,” says Bland. “The time has come to recognize all of the great horse trainers and present them with the opportunity to become the next world champion.”

Never before has Road to the Horse opened the gate to those with championship dreams to showcase their horsemanship skills in front of an international audience. If you are looking for the chance of a lifetime, the cards are in your favor. You could be crowned a World Champion of Colt Starting!

Always looking forward, Bland is excited to celebrate 10 incredible years of Road to the Horse this coming March by bringing together the past, present and now future horsemanship greats in one arena. Road to the Horse 2013 is destined to be an event to remember as Guy McLean, Dan James, Obbie Schlom and Sarah Winters vie for the coveted title and the Wild Card competitors step onto the world stage as Road to the Horse goes wild.
