If you would like to “Ride with the Experts,” just take the following steps:

  1. Fill out a contract (available at or by calling (303) 292-4981.) List your three clinician preferences, and the RMHE will forward your information to the clinician(s) in order of preference, for them to determine whether it’s a match between their program and your skills and goals. If your first choice doesn’t work out, then the RMHE will contact your second, etc.
  2. Full payment is expected at the time of submitting the contract.
  3. Furnish proof of liability insurance. If you don'’t have this coverage from another source, it’s included in your Colorado Horse Council individual/family membership or available for purchase from us. Not a member yet? Time to join: go to for an application.
  4. Contracts and insurance must be submitted no later than March 1.
  5. Note and follow all the requirements for health papers detailed on the contract; papers will be checked at the gate before your horse is admitted onto the National Western grounds.
  6. You must be at least 16 yrs old to participate.  If you are under 18, your parent or legal guardian must sign the application along with you.
  7. All riders (and parent/guardian if appropriate) must sign RMHE liability releases before riding.
