Past Road to the Horse World Champion Stacy Westfall will return to Road to the Horse 2015 but this time she will not be competing for the World Championship of Colt Starting title, instead she will be joining the Mounted Shooters of America All Star Team to demonstrate one of the fastest growing equine sports of mounted shooting. Westfall will return to Road to the Horse riding her winning mount from Road to the Horse 2006 which she fondly calls ‘Popcorn.
In 2006, Westfall defeated Craig Cameron, Martin Black and Van Hargis to win the coveted title, making her the only cowgirl in the history of the event to do so. Westfall purchased Popcorn after the very first round of competition during Road to the Horse 2006. The then three-year-old AQHA colt named Doctor T Tari, was sired by Docs T Peppy and out of Ms Tari Babe. The colt was raised on the Cornelius Ranch, in Blountsville, AL. Since the event, Popcorn has become an integral part of Westfall’s team of performance horses.

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.
