Road to the Horse is well known for exciting twists and turns that keep the competition on the cutting edge of the equine industry. Road to the Horse 2015 will be no exception. For the very first time in the history of this prestigious event, fans will witness each competitor select two different horses from the AQHA Remuda from the 6666 Ranch. Competitors will take each colt through the entire competition, including the obstacle course and the winner of the event will be calculated on an accumulative score from both colts. This format will demonstrate the ability of each competitor to adjust their training techniques to work with the different personalities of the horse.
Undefeated 3x Road to the Horse Champion Chris Cox will return to Road to the Horse in 2015. Chris Cox is a master of colt starting with World Championship wins in 2007, 2008 and 2011. No other competitor in the electrifying history of Road to the Horse has taken home the coveted title every time they have stepped into the round pen.
Road to the Horse 2014 Champion and Ram Wild Card Champion Jim Anderson will also return in 2015 to defend his title. Fans at Road to the Horse 2014 witnessed a Cinderella story unfold when Anderson captured both the Wild Card Championship title and the main event title. The 2015 Wild Card winner will be announced and then immediately step into a round pen to compete for the Road to the Horse 2015 World Championship of Colt Starting title against Anderson and Cox.
“It’s double the 6666 Ranch horse power, double the horsemanship, double the excitement and double the challenge at Road to the Horse 2015 when our 3X Undefeated World Champion Chris Cox returns to face off with our 2014 World Champion Jim Anderson and the 2015 Wild Card Champion. Did anyone expect less from Road to the Horse 2015?” stated Road to the Horse Owner and Producer Tootie Bland. “When the dust clears on Sunday, there will not be enough adjectives in the dictionary to describe this historical Road to the Horse!”
Road to the Horse fans are also in for an additional treat when one lucky fan will walk away from Road to the Horse 2015 with a check for $10,000. At the commencement of Road to the Horse, a group of lucky fans will be randomly drawn from the entire list of Road to Horse 2015 ticket purchasers. Those lucky fans will then each select a colt from the AQHA Remuda from the 6666 Ranch. The fan who selected the 6666 Ranch colt that is the highest scoring horse at the event will receive a check for $10,000.

A competition untouched by others, Road to the Horse dares elite horse trainers to create a trusting partnership with an untouched 3-year-old American Quarter Horse.

Only one can walk away with the World Championship of Colt Starting title.
