Alabama Trainers Expo

Which is a competition in which qualified horse trainers work with a Dusty Trails Horse Rescue (DTHR) horse for an extended amount of time and compete in the Expo.

The goals of the Expo is to:

  • Introduce the public to talented rescue horses
  • Showcase the training abilities of Horse Trainers
  • Produce horses who are ready to go to work for their adoptive families and find their forever homes
  • Enjoying a fun day with family and horse friends

The competition is open to any horse trainer who applies and whose property is inspected and approved.

Coordinator and the Expo organizers will select a pool of eligible horses which will be assigned to trainers by a draw.

When the trainer picks up his/her horse he/she will have up until the competition on/about to work with the horse.

The contest will be judged by a panel of equine professionals. Each horse/trainer combination will be scored on:

  • Improvement from initial assessment
  • Condition of horse
  • Presentation/freestyle

Scores will be tabulated. The highest two scoring horse/trainer combinations will be named Grand Champion and Reserve Grand Champion.

Prizes:

  • Grand Champion: $1500
  • Reserve Grand Champion: $500

The horses who participate in the Expo will be available for adoption after the event. All  horses will go up for Adoption the day of the contest.  Horses who are broke to ride will be offered for adoption for $500. Pre-approved adopters may adopt and take home the horse after the Expo. If more than one pre-approved adopter wishes to adopt the same horse, they may bid up the adoption fee and the highest bidder will adopt the horse. Adoption applications will also be accepted the day of the Expo but those adopters will not be allowed to adopt until their property is inspected and approved.

New forms / time / dates and applications for future expo depends on sponsors and will be posted here.
