Please download CLINICIANAPPLICATION.pdf for a complete listing of requirements and application forms. (Requires Adobe Acrobat Reader)

Applications are accepted on a continual basis

Thank you for your interest in competing in Road to the Horse. Each year, we look for the top horse trainers, who use kind methods to effectively teach both horses and horse owners. Education and integrity are our primary goals. Participating clinicians must also be eloquent and lively speakers and great entertainers.

Our application process allows us to get to know new and upcoming horse trainers. To apply, please fill out the following application pack. Return this pack along with your videos approximately a year and a half before the show year when you’d like to participate. For example, participants for the 2014 event will be selected prior to the 2013 winner announcement (unless the winner determines who will compete again).

Please note: the materials you send cannot be returned due to the amount of applications we receive. We’ll contact you if our producers and judges are interested in you after reviewing your application and videos. The management reserves the right to invite celebrity horse trainers.

Good luck on your way to Road to the Horse!
Tootie Bland, Producer/Owner
