What: When at least three junior and/or amateur students per trainer* take the online Horsemanship Quiz Challenge Practice Quiz between June 15 and July 15, the trainer’s barn will be in the running for a unique trainer-inspired award package with Charles Owen helmet, a one-year membership to EquestrianCoach, a grooming bucket with supplies from Shapley's, Samples from Perfect Products, a gift from Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital, one year subscription to The Plaid Horse, a pair of pro performance horse boots from Professional’s Choice and a gift card from Parlanti. At the end of the 30-day challenge, the three top scores under each trainer will be averaged to provide an overall score and the highest scoring trainer per zone wins a prize! In addition, participants under the age of 21 (per USEF rules) can give their barn an edge by acquiring bonus points when they take the official Horsemanship Quiz Challenge. Participants who take the Level One and Level Two HQC quizzes will receive 10 bonus points for each level they complete. Those points are then added to their individual score. In the event of a tie, a fourth score will be added to the average.
Why: Fun for the whole barn while learning more about understanding and caring for our equine partners. The best part is that it includes the grown-ups (e.g. trainers, coaches and riding instructors*) in the fun their students are having.
