The beginning of each year brings self-promises of improving our riding, learning a new discipline, honing our horsemanship, finding a new trainer, or cleaning out the tack room. If any of these New Year’s resolutions sound familiar, mark your calendar for the Ultimate Riding Resolutions Workshop and Used Tack Swap, February 2, 2019 at the Douglas County Fairgrounds Community Arena. This event will feature mini-instructional workshops by four of the top trainers in the region that specialize in extreme cowboy racing and obstacle challenges.
Mid-day, a judging workshop will provide insight to what judges are looking for when scoring a rider’s performance for particular types of obstacles along with valuable tips about how you can increase your scores.
Reserve a table to find a new home for those gently used items that have been cluttering up your tack room or come and shop for that perfect piece of equipment you’ve been searching for. At the end of the day, we’ll pit our featured trainers head-to-head in a fast-paced match race to demonstrate the excitement, finesse and horsemanship that is the Ultimate Horsemens Challenge Association. So, fast track your goals in February and join us for this surefire remedy for the winter blues.
NOTE: This is a spectator event, not a riding event, please don't plan on bringing your horses.
