If you’re a Road to the Horse addict, you’ve probably already got your bags packed and your ticket in hand… if you don’t, you need to get packing! For the last two years, the ‘Road to the Horse Thursday’ has been an equestrian star-studded kick-off for all Road to the Horse fans. Road to the Horse 2017 opens like no other equestrian event in the world with personal clinics from four past World Champions, equine celebrities, working dog demonstration, a drill team championship showdown and the very first look at the real stars of the show, the AQHA 6666 Remuda. On Thursday March 23, Road to the Horse throws open the doors to a weekend of mega proportions with the Celebration of the Cowgirl in unprecedented fashion. Festivities start in the beautiful Alltech Arena with non-stop action, education and excitement from 7.30am to 7.00pm!
“Go big or go home has been the battle cry of Road to the Horse for 14 years and this year we have blown the doors off with more equestrian celebrities than there are stars in the heavens! If you’re passionate about horses, you won’t want to be anywhere else on Thursday March 23” states Road to the Horse Owner/Producer, Tootie Bland. “When we said we’re celebrating the cowgirl in 2017, we weren’t kidding!”
Who better than the First Lady of Road to the Horse, Ms. Stacy Westfall, to start the Celebration of the Cowgirl with a once-in-a-lifetime personal Cupcake Breakfast on Thursday, March 23, 2017. All fans are invited to an up-close and personal experience with Road to the Horse 2006 World Champion, Stacy Westfall. Hear in her own words how she became the “The First Lady of Road to the Horse.”
Road to the Horse 2017 is excited to welcome back past Road to the Horse World Champions Craig Cameron, Dan James and Nick Dowers as they each host individual personal clinics, stuffed with knowledge, presenting fans with amazing learning opportunities from champions who wear the coveted Road to the Horse Gist Silversmith buckle. Barbara Cox will be joining our celebrities on Thursday. After having to withdraw from the main competition with emergency back surgery, this courageous and gutsy cowgirl is on hand to teach and inspire other cowgirls.
After a Road to the Horse Meet-and-Greet with celebrities and competitors Sarah Dawson, Kate Neubert, Rachelle Valentine and Vicki Wilson, fans will have an opportunity to watch the Double Dan Insider horse Woodford perform. We’ll then meet the stars of the show in our Splash of Panache, when we gallop the AQHA Remuda from the 6666 Ranch onto Road to the Horse dirt, for the very first time!
