Fans at Road to the Horse 2017 can be prepared for an added competition like never before! We’ll gather over 30 girls and more than 30 horses, in the very first Road to the Horse Drill Team Showdown.
We’re welcoming back the much loved Young Guns 4H Drill Team who performed at Road to the Horse 2016, and they’ll be joined by some fierce competition.
Meet Young Guns 4H Drill Team…..
Who is a Young Gun cowgirl? She epitomizes courage and heart! The endless hours of care and work she dedicates to her horse and her teammates are what she truly loves. Being a Young Gun goes well beyond our love of horses and riding, we learn how to become responsible, industrious and productive citizens of this great nation! Recently named the 2016 4-H Kentucky State Champions, the Young Guns now hold 9 state titles, 6 reserve state titles, and 4 national titles! The Young Guns just keep rockin’ the horse world and was proud to perform at Road to the Horse 2016!
Meet Prime Time Express…..
(PTE) is a non-profit mounted equestrian drill team hailing from the Central Texas, City of Groesbeck. PTE is known for their matching white western hats, long curly ponytails, and patriotic high-collared long-sleeved shirts. The group of ladies has captivated audiences with their style and grace for more than 12 years with their high-energy, perfectly-synchronized performances arranged on horseback.
Prime Time Express performs at exhibitions, rodeos and parades, and competes against other mounted drill teams from across the USA where they have won many state and national titles. Recently, at the 2016 National Competition, PTE won the 2016 Sports Quest Cup Ride of Champions.
The team also had the honor and privilege of being “selected”, from many equestrian applications, to participate in the 2013 as well as the 2015 Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, California. Part of this honor was performing at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center Equestfest which was aired on RFD TV.

We hope to be able to include all five colors in our quadrille presentations” – Beth Beyner.
