Training Challenge

THe Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge is accepting applications for the 2019 Spring Challenge. Competitors will work with their horses from February to May 4, 2019.

The Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge is a competition in which volunteer foster homes and professional trainers work with a Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society foster horse for three months and compete in the Challenge at the 2019 Bluebonnet’s HelpAHorse Show and Adoption Event in Sanger, Texas on May 4, 2019.

The goals of the Challenge are to:

  • Introduce the public to talented rescue horses
  • Showcase the training abilities of Bluebonnet foster homes
  • Produce horses who are ready to go to work for their adopters

The competition is open to any BEHS member who applies to foster and is approved, as well as professional trainers. If you are not currently an approved foster home or BEHS member, join the rescue and download a fostering application to begin the process.

Each horse and trainer or foster home combination’s total score will be based on:

  • Difficulty level of horse
  • Condition of horse (judged in a halter class)
  • Freestyle Event
  • Western or english horse show classes (pleasure and equitation)
