Austin (central TX): Sat., Oct. 19 horse-challenge event

in Austin (central TX-area):  Sat., Oct. 19 horse-training challenge with $5,000 in prize money.  To participate &/or $pon$or the Challenge: under “Challenge” or or 888-542-5163.  Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society (BEHS) launched the first Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge in 2009 to introduce the public to rescue horses while showcasing the horses’ talents.  “Far too often people look down on rescue horses, seeing them as unwanted or useless,” says BEHS Executive Director Dr. Jennifer Williams. “Our goal with the Challenge is to prove that assumption false, & our horses & the Training Challenge participants have made us proud each year!  Some of our Challenge horses have gone on to be kids’ horses, competitive trail & endurance horses, & show horses.”  The Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge (the Challenge) is a training competition open to anyone in Texas or a surrounding state who is willing to become an approved foster home for Bluebonnet.  It includes five divisions:  Professional Trainer, Foster Home/Amateur Showing Under Saddle, Foster Home/Amateur Showing in Hand, Youth, & Senior Foster Home/Amateur Showing in Hand (new for this year).  Contestants spend three months (July-October) working with a horse from the rescue & then demonstrate the horse’s skills in a freestyle competition & over an obstacle course at the Bluebonnet Horse Expo on Sat., October 19 in Austin, Texas.  In addition to the new Senior Foster Horse/Amateur division, this year’s event offers several other improvements including increased prize money, extra points for those horses shown under saddle, & a Difficulty Score which is used to rate the horse’s behavior or training prior to the beginning of the Challenge (so that the judges can better rate each horse’s progress).  Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society is accepting applications for participants until July 1 for the 2013 Rescue Horse Training Challenge.  Each participant will be assigned a horse in July & will pick up his or her horse around July 15.  The organization is also seeking $pon$or$ in order to offer even more competitive award$ to participants$pons$or$hip benefits include complimentary admission, advertising privileges, vendor space & more.
