July 2, 2013 - There's still time to enter the Horsemanship Stable Challenge. Show your horsemanship knowledge with this fun and educational event. Teams can participate through July 15.
When at least three junior and/or amateur students per trainer* take the online Horsemanship Quiz Challenge Practice Quiz between June 14 and July 15, the trainer will be in the running for a unique trainer inspired award package which includes a Trainer Certification Program Manual, one year free subscription from EquestrianCoach.com, a ball cap, insulated lunch cooler and a copy of "Equine ER" provided by Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital and Veterinary Pharmacy, 10 free bags of grain provided by Nutrena, a Charles Owen Tote Bag, a Horsemanship Quiz Challenge Presenting Sponsor Sweet Briar College Gift Pack and a USHJA package of polo wraps, grooming brush and a hoof pick.
At the end of the 30-day challenge, the three top scores under each trainer will be averaged to provide an overall score and the highest scoring trainer in each zone wins the awards package!
Winning teams will also be listed on a full page ad in the September issue of USHJA In Stride!
To date there are participants in every zone!
