About the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge

The Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge will begin accepting applications for the 2020 Challenge in late February 2020. Competitors will work with their horses from June to October 17, 2020.

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 four months and compete in the Challenge at the 2020 Bluebonnet Horse Expo in Taylor, Texas.

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 and is approved, as well as professional trainers. If you are not currently a BEHS member, join the rescue to begin the process.  Those competing in the professional category do not have to join the rescue.  All competitors will need to fill out a Training Challenge application here.

The contest will be judged by a panel of  three equine professionals. Each horse and trainer or foster home combination’s total score will be based on:

  • Difficulty level of horse
  • Condition of horse
  • Freestyle Class
  • Trail Class

Please email us with any questions.
