Glenn Stewart joins the 2012 Road To The Horse!

Glenn has been invited to participate in the World Championship of Colt Starting in the 2012 Road to the Horse in Murfreesboro, TN!  2012 Road to the Horse Goes Global with International Teams - The entire equine industry has been abuzz since the 2011 Road to the Horse Legends event which matched the United States’ three largest superstar clinicians against one another in a horsemanship duel of epic proportions.

The twenty million dollar question everyone has been asking since is “How are you going to top this?” Event Owner/Producer Tootie Bland’s answer? Go global, find the world’s best clinicians, place them in an innovative international team format and let them go toe to toe for the World Championship of Colt Starting at the 2012 Road to the Horse March 9-11, 2012 in Murfreesboro, TN.

Road to the Horse, the World Championship of Colt-Starting is unlike any other event in the equine or entertainment industry. The three-day event will match six of the world's best horse trainers and clinicians of today against one another as they train unbroken colts to ride in just a few short hours in front of a packed live audience and television cameras. By combining education, edge-of-your-seat suspense, entertainment and the love of the horse, Road to the Horse has been responsible for solidifying the position of today’s horsemanship heroes and launching the careers of tomorrow’s hottest new stars. In the process, the event itself has become a catalyst for the advancement of natural horsemanship. Hosted by Rick Lamb, of RFD-TV’s The Horse Show with Rick Lamb, spectators are guaranteed not only to have a good time, but also to walk away with training knowledge that will improve their relationship with horses. The event is supported by title sponsor Western Horseman and in association with AQHA.

“Going global means new horsemen, new styles of horsemanship and an exciting challenge to see who’s the best in the world.  Road to the Horse will host the first ever International Match in Colt Starting. We have invited Australia and Canada to see if they can match the talent in the United States. National Pride is on the line and we will find out in Murfreesboro who rules the world.  This is going to more horsemanship in one arena than ever before. I can’t wait for this one!” says Bland.

Traditionally, three to four clinicians have been matched up for this prestigious competition which gives competitors just a few short hours over two days to train an untouched young horse to accept a rider in front of a standing-room-only live audience and the attentive eyes of the worldwide equine press corp. While training has been limited to two days in the past, the 2012 event will feature round pen sessions on all three days.

“We’re doubling down! Never before have six clinicians shared the arena floor and never before have we paired competitors up in a team format. Road to the Horse is known for its twists and turns and we’ll definitely have some challenges the competitors will have to face. The excitement of this event is destined to be Tennessee’s equivalent of the Kentucky Derby,” says Bland.

Glenn will represent Team Canada, along with his good friend, Clinician Jonathan Field.  Glenn says "I'm excited and honored to represent Canada in this international competition, and there is no one I would rather be on a team with than Jonathan."

This isn't the first time these old friends have put their heads together and combined thier horsemanship, and whenever they do the laughter, knowledge, and comradery is non stop.
