• The Unveiling of the RTTH 2017 AQHA Remuda from the 6666 Ranch

    Nothing will take your breath away, like watching a galloping remuda of colts against a rugged West Texas backdrop. An electrifying highlight on the Road to the Horse calendar, the gathering and selection of the AQHA Remuda is a magical day for those lucky enough to be part of the Road to the Horse crew.

    “If you’re a horse lover, rancher, a historian and a believer, you’ll consider this the luckiest day of your life” states Road to the Horse Owner/Producer Tootie Bland. “Dr. Glenn Blodgett never ceases to amaze me, just when you think you have seen the very best, he doubles down.”
