The cowgirl has long been etched into history. The pioneering women who won the west, paved the way for the modern cowgirl, an evolution worthy of a Road to the Horse celebration! In celebration of the spirit of the cowgirl, the very first all-ladies, World Championship of Colt Starting, will gather the best horsewomen in the world.
Road to the Horse 2017 competitors Barbara Cox and Sarah Winters Dawson were announced as competitors during Road to the Horse 2016, and they will now be joined by newcomer, Rachelle Valentine, a young trainer who cut her teeth working with Clinton Anderson, Dean Locke, and Sean Patrick. Previously announced newcomer, Barbara Cox, is wife of undefeated Road to the Horse World Champion Chris Cox. Now playing the role as pen wrangler, Chris will assist his wife as she steps into the spotlight in 2017. Also competing is Sarah Winters Dawson.
Like her father Richard Winters, Sarah is a Road to the Horse veteran. Sarah has earned two NRCHA World Championships, was the 2015 Snaffle Bit Futurity Limited Open Champion, along with being a finalist in every NRCHA premiere event. Fans at Road to the Horse, follow the journey and witness an accumulation of a lifetime of passion and knowledge be put to the test as elite clinicians from around the world face off for the coveted World Championship of Colt Starting title.
Road To The Horse fans witness the developing partnerships, the setbacks and the triumphs, as competitors build a relationship with an untouched 3-year-old American Quarter Horse which will then be put to the ultimate test. Only one can walk away with the World Championship of Colt Starting title. Road to the Horse 2017 will return to the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, KY, March 23-26, 2017.
