Road to the Horse Goes Back to the Ranch in 2020

RTTH 2020 Competitor Ken McNabb

Road to the Horse 2020’s Back to the Ranch theme is a celebration of the timeless values of the Western lifestyle that include authenticity, courage, humbleness, chivalry, and a relentless can-do Western spirit. Our final Road to the Horse 2020 competitor, Ken McNabb, amplifies those characteristics with his strong ranching roots and lifelong dedication to the horse. Ken McNabb will complete the main competitor line up for Road to the Horse 2020 joining Craig Cameron and Wade Black, as they compete for the title on March 19-22, in Lexington, Kentucky.

Ken is no stranger to Road to the Horse competition, having competed in 2008 and 2010, when the event was previously held in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.  Although Ken McNabb is a veteran Road to the Horse competitor, it will be his first time to compete in 10 years and his first time to compete in the Bluegrass State under the bright lights of the Alltech Arena.

“I am honored and excited to be invited back to Road to the Horse 2020. I am looking forward to the camaraderie and good natured competitiveness that it offers. With Western Horseman at the helm and the theme of Back to the Ranch, I believe this competition fits me like a glove” states McNabb. “I am thrilled to be chosen as one of the three representatives for the ranching industry and I am eager to take our colt starting program that we use here on the ranch and present it to the judges at Road to the Horse. Until then, May God Bless the Trails You Ride.”

A true-blue American cowboy with a boyish enthusiasm for life and strong family values, Ken McNabb grew up in a traditional ranching family in the mountains of Wyoming. Since then he has been changing people’s lives through his weekly television show called Discovering the Horseman Within (airing on RFD-TV), nationwide clinics, 3-week apprenticeship programs and special appearances at large expositions. Ken, his wife DeeDee, and their two sons Kurt and Trent live in Lovell, Wyoming where they are dedicated as a family to teaching others to dream bigger, ride taller and live happier.

“Ken McNabb is a gifted American horseman and his unwavering dedication to the Western lifestyle is truly admirable,” stated Western Horseman Publisher Ernie King. “All three main competitors at Road to the Horse 2020 are great ambassadors for the Western lifestyle we all love, and all of them are at the pinnacle of their horsemanship careers.” Road to the Horse 2020 will take place at the Kentucky Horse Park on March 19-22.
