DEFHR Trainers Challenge

DEFHR invites you to our farm to join in the excitement on June 6, 2015, 11:00AM -2:00 PM, as six teams compete in our fourth annual DEFHR Trainers Challenge. Admission - $5.

Once paired with a horse, trainers generously invest 90 days working to build a partnership that will earn them the top prize. Come out and show support for your favorites by wearing that team's colors on competition day! Click here to meet the teams.

Teams go before a panel of judges to compete in two classes - an obstacle course and a freestyle performance - earning points toward becoming the overall challenge winner. Click here to meet the judges.

We want to thank our sponsors for helping us to make this event possible. We are still seeking additional event sponsors, so those interested can contact development@defhr.org. Click here to view event sponsors.
