Colt Starting Challenge USA

Friday, March 7th, 4:00pm - Event Center
Saturday, March 8th, 4:00pm - Event Center
Sunday, March 9th, 2:30pm - Event Center

If you love horses, you will enjoy watching Russell Beatty and other contestants gentle an unbroke horse and ride it in only a few hours at these Colt Starting Challenges. Come see the action, sit right there beside the round pen, and be amazed at how Russell and other contestants can quickly tame, and then ride a young horse using Natural Horsemanship techniques.

It is Russell's goal to provide a forum for contestants to compete at these Colt Starting Challenges thru out the country in order to show their Natural Horsemanship skills. The contestants compete against each other in order to find out at each event who wins the Champion Trainer Buckle.
