COLT STARTING CHALLENGE USA  

The Minnesota Horse Expo Colt Starting Challenge will have 4 Contestants who will start, gentle and ride 4 unbroke horses in just 
a few hours. These horses have never been saddled, bridled, nor ridden, however they are halter broke. 

On Friday morning at 8:30 am, come and watch all 4 Natural Horsemanship Trainers work their horses at the same time. They will have a one hour session the first round to work with their horse in their round pen. Then there will be a 10 minute break. The second session will be 50 minutes. Each Trainer will explain to the audience, one at a time, what they are doing and why as they work with their horse.

On Saturday morning at 8:30 am, all 4 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 in the second session. They will all have two 45 minute sessions to work with their horse, with a 10 minute break in between. 

Then at on Sunday at 9:30 am, all 4 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.
