Gritty Kiwi Cowgirl Vicki Wilson Set to Defend her Title in 2018

Vicki heard you.  Tootie heard you.  The whole world heard you.  Fans didn’t just whisper, they shouted for the return of Vicki Wilson at Road to the Horse 2018, and the gritty Kiwi cowgirl answered!  Famed show jumper, Vicki Wilson, took over the Road to the Horse Facebook page to let everyone know, she’s coming back on a viral Facebook LIVE video. Her passion burns strong and her ‘broken wing’ will be healed, as she plans to defend her World Championship of Colt Starting title, she so valiantly earned in 2017.

“I’m incredibly excited to be joining Road to the Horse 2018 and I can’t wait to come back to share my knowledge, do more clinics and educate people in America and around the world, I think there’s bigger and better things to come” stated the international showjumper Vicki Wilson.

The search for a horsewoman like Vicki Wilson had spanned over a decade. The dream of blending the English and Western disciplines had been a lifelong mission of Road to the Horse Owner/Producer Tootie Bland, a pioneer who is constantly driven to smash the preconceived boundaries of horsemanship. This gutsy visionary was on a quest to bring unique talent to Road to the Horse and the delivery was embraced by hungry fans.

From the very beginning, there was no denying this cowgirl was different, but fans embraced her English riding roots and new training concepts which clearly demonstrated her unyielding love for the horse. Wilson began as an unknown to most on the American landscape, but fans quickly fell in love with the Kiwi, after she portrayed unbelievable strength, to not only carry on at Road to the Horse 2017 with a dislocated shoulder, but to walk away with the coveted title.

“This is the dawn of a new paradigm, the evolution of a new way of thinking” stated Road to the Horse Owner/Producer Tootie Bland. “Fans have never witnessed anything like Vicki Wilson and she’s ready to return and defend her title. Plans are already underway for the biggest celebration in Road to the Horse history, as we commemorate our fifteenth anniversary in 2018.”
