The challenge this year will feature our foundation portion which focuses on a good solid start and the top trainer of the year will be awarded based off their performance. In addition, we have added a showmanship element back to challenge or as we refer to it the "WOW" Factor. This element will provide trainers with the opportunity to show the extras that they have done with the horse. It will be awarded a separate prize and will not be factored into the overall trainer of the year scoring.
Plan on attending the event to cheer on your favorite trainer starting at 1 pm on September 15.
