Riding consistently can be a challenge we all face. So we created a challenge that will help produce motivation, guidance and a little friendly competition to help us all knock out our goals with our horse for 2021.

The Horsemanship Challenge is a 4 month challenge to ride/work with your horse for a total of 60 sessions or more! You will be joining over 3000 (and growing) equestrians worldwide that have taken the leap. We have a facebook group of like mined passionate riders who are ready to help push each other to new goals and places in their relationship with their horse. 

We will be giving out prizes along the way that so far total over $8,000! There are LOTS of prizes to be won, and several opportunities to do so.

You can do this from any part of world. It MUST be on your horse, or a regular horse you lease/ride. For us trainers, clients horses do NOT count. 

This challenge is completely FREE!
