About the Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge

THe Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge will begin accepting applications for the 2018 Challenge in late February 2018. Competitors will work with their horses from mid-June to October 20, 2018.

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 2018 Bluebonnet Horse Expo in Austin, 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 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.

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
