“I cannot think of anything better than a competitive event where everyone wins! A Trainer’s Challenge not only helps showcase the amazing talent of trainer’s who are out there, but it also showcases the amazing horses that are available through adoption in horse rescues throughout the state. Many people may not give a “rescue” horse a second look, and a Trainer’s Challenge is a great way to show people that just because a horse winds up in a transition in their life, they are no less wonderful of a horse than any horse out there. A Trainer’s Challenge helps rescues tremendously by helping the horses become more adoptable by a wider range of people because of the additional training they receive, and showing people how talented and versatile the horses in rescue really are. The Trainer’s Challenge will have a major positive impact for all of the horses, rescues and trainers involved. What an amazing event to get behind and support to help so many horses, people and rescue!” – Karen Bayerl Co-Director, Midwest Horse Welfare Foundation, Inc.
