If you love horses, you will enjoy watching experienced cowboys and cowgirls from around the Country gentle, start, and ride unbroke horses in just a few hours. How is this possible? These horse trainers are not only very talented, but they are using Natural Horsemanship methods. This technique speeds up the process of starting and gentling a horse. Our event is not only to entertain you, but also to educate you about how a horse thinks, operates, and responds to a Horse Trainer’s cues using body language. Watch THE ACTION as you see the unique personalities of not only the horses, but also of the Contestants, and their original concepts to starting colts.

It is Colt Starting Challenge USA’s goal to provide a forum for Horse Trainers from around the Country to compete at our events, in order to show off their Natural Horsemanship skills. The Trainers compete against each other in order to find out at each event, who wins the Champion Trainer buckle. Trainers gain cumulative points at each event towards participation in the National Finals, at the prestigious NFR Cowboy Christmas Trade Show in Las Vegas, Nevada in December. 

Colt Starting Challenge USA was founded by expert Horse Trainer Russell Beatty and his wife and announcer Cristy Beatty. They now tour the United States to produce Colt Starting Challenge USA events from California to Virginia.
