Guy McLean Announced as Wild Card Challenge Featured Performer and Guest Clinician

There are some moments in Road to the Horse history that are unforgettable. It was Road to the Horse 2013, when Guy McLean’s 6666 Ranch colt climbed the pedestal in the final obstacle course and stood perfectly still as he recited a heartfelt poem. There wasn’t a dry eye in the Alltech Arena. The two-time Road to the Horse Champion is a fan favorite and is excited to perform at the Wild Card Challenge, which will take place on September 22-25 in Fort Worth, Texas. 

“I have two wonderful World Champions from the (Road to the Horse) competition, Mate and Aussie,” states two-time Road to the Horse World Champion, Guy McLean. “I’m excited to be there and share my proud country and the beautiful horses we have.”

The Road to the Horse Wild Card Challenge will feature six competitors, colts from the legendary 6666 Ranch and a cash purse of over $25,000. The Wild Card Challenge Champion will also be awarded an invitation to compete as a Championship Competitor at Road to the Horse 2023, where they will battle for their share of the $125,000 cash purse.

As a Featured Performer, Guy McLean will entertain fans during the Wild Card Challenge Opening Ceremonies, and will also host a clinic on Saturday, September 24. A detailed event schedule can be found at
