Wild Card Competitors at The Road to the Horse

26 Mar

wild cardsA year of working….a short time to show what you have done…an announcement of the winner and then straight into the round pen to compete for $100,000.00!

That is what will happen to one of this years ‘Wild Card’ competitors at the Road to the Horse.

I had the chance to visit with several of the competitors yesterday and learn more about the process. I knew that last years Wild Card, Jim Anderson, not only won the Wild Card but also turned around and won the Road to the Horse. As impressive as that sounded to read (I wasn’t there to see it either) imagine what it must have been like to live it. Both emotionally and physically this would be a challenge. They have to come in prepared with the horse they have been training for the last year and a plan on how best to show him, then they also must be prepared to step straight into the second part of the competition. Imagine the planning that has gone into packing and preparing without knowing for sure if they will be moving on.

This years competitors are: Trevor CarterJames CoolerDan KeenMary KitzmillerBobby KnightSean Patrick. Check out their websites and their Facebook pages. They have been documenting the training of their Wild Card horses as well as much more.

    I’ve been a faithful follower and admirer of Sean Patrick for a couple of years. Very grounded and sane guy. John Lyons disciple, and a great horseman.
