Wouldn’t be great if an Appaloosa won this?

You may be sitting on “America’s Favorite Trail Horse.” At least that’s what the American Competitive Trail Horse Association (ACTHA) wants to find out. They have launched a new reality series where America gets to choose their favorite trail horse! Auditions are being held across the USA and 100 finalists will be chosen to come to Austin Texas to perform for the cameras! Here, competitors will be assisted by National Clinicians including Monty Roberts, Pat and Linda Parelli, Van Hargis and Patti Colbert.

Segments will be aired on two national RFDTV shows with full length features on streaming video.

America votes 10 times after TV viewing, each time awarding $5,000 to the performance of the week. The 3 final winners determined by cumulative votes share $50,000.
Go to to join the fun!” because ANY horse can WIN This!

    Although it is not a televised national competition, the South Dakota Horse Fair is hosting the “Horseman’s Challenge” in March. The Center of the Nation Appaloosa Horse Club is adding a $100 prize to the highest placing ApHC-registered horse! See
