- 6 ROUND PENS.....

The Western Heritage Classic Colt Starting Challenge will have 6 Contestants who will start, gentle and ride 6 unbroke horses in just a few hours. These horses have never been saddled, bridled, nor ridden, however they are halter broke. 

Come and watch all 6 Natural Horsemanship Trainers work their horses at the same time. They will have 2 one hour sessions to work with their horse in their round pen with a 10 minute break in between. Each Trainer will explain to the audience, one at a time, what they are doing and why as they work with their horse.

The next day, all 6 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 all 6 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.

My name is Keith Messick. I live in Snyder, TX. I have always enjoyed horses. I begin breaking horses 15 years ago and have tried many methods until I have successfully come up with my own. 

Each horse has a mind of its own and as a trainer you have to figure each horse out. I have begin a new journey of calf roping and training calf horses. 

It is very enjoyable to see the transformation horses can make with proper training.
