The Rocky Mountain Expo Colt Starting Challenge will have 8 Contestants who will start, gentle and ride 8 unbroke horses in just a few hours. These horses have never been saddled, bridled, nor ridden, however they are halter broke.
On Friday, come and watch all 8 Natural Horsemanship Trainers work their horses at the same time. They will have 2 hours to work with their horse in their round pen, with a 10 minute break in between. The trainers will explain to the audience, one at a time, what they are doing and why as they work with their horse.
On Saturday, all 8 Trainers continue their work with their horses in the round pens. Some will choose to leave the round pens and ride their horse in the arena as they prepare their horses for the obstacle course. They will all have two 45 minute sessions to work with their horse, with a 10 minute break in between.
Then the third day, on Sunday, all 8 Trainers will each have 12 minutes to ride their horse thru the obstacle course, one at a time. The Judges decide the Winner and a Buckle is awarded.
