Jan. 4, 2005 — Clinton Anderson returns from winning the 2003 Road to the Horse challenge in Fort Worth, Texas, to meet Craig Cameron and Van Hargis in Murfreesboro, Tenn., March 5-6, 2005, for the second world class horsemanship event.

Road to the Horse showcases the true test of competitive horsemanship. Anderson, Cameron and Hargis will tame three virtually untouched young horses in front of a crowd and judges. Each clinician will demonstrate his way of gentling a colt and preparing it to be ridden and negotiated through an obstacle course.

Radio host Rick Lamb will host the two-day event at the Tennessee Miller Coliseum. The event is co-sponsored by Horse & Rider magazine.

Road to the Horse showcases the technique of gentling instead of breaking horses. The first event took place in December 2003 in Fort Worth, starring Curt Pate, Clinton Anderson and Josh Lyons. Anderson won that event.

The first day of Road to the Horse will feature a trade show with over 100 vendors and one-hour clinics with each of the three clinicians. The, a herd of virtually untouched colts will be led into the arena, and Anderson, Cameron and Hargis will draw a horse for the challenge.

The trade show and challenge will continue on the second day. The winner will be announced at the end of the second day of Road to the Horse, based on who has made the most progress with his horse. The judges are Bob Moorhouse, Jack Brainard, Mike Kevill, Cherry Hill and Bob Miller, DVM.
