Girl Power at the 2013 Road to the Horse

by DePaolo Equine Concepts

The cowgirls mounted up for this year’s Road to the Horse competition.  The competition selects three or four elite horse trainers and clinicians and puts them up against each other for the title of Road to the Horse World Champion. These competitors choose a horse out of the remuda, a group of 10 horses, and they begin building a relationship with one specific horse.

Although Guy McLean took the championship prize, Obbie Schlom and Sarah Winters showed some real girl power by placing second and third.  Dan James took home fourth.  Unlike a horse show, these competitors are judged not only on a final test of skill, but the means to the end result. The goal of Road to the Horse is to teach horsemen and women that natural horsemanship is a kinder, gentler way of working with horses.

If you missed the competition, you can purchase the DVDs online and see some real horsemen and horsewomen at work!
