Stockhorse training Demonstration

8th - 10th FEBruary

Cobargo Ap & H Society wish to thank all the sponsors of this 3 day training demonstration

Proudly Donating a Saddle to the best training team

Watch and learn as three horse training teams, battle it out for the prestigious title in this educational horse starting demonstration.

 

This event is designed to showcase the talent of three local trainers invited by Glen Mia Saddlery Bega to go “head to head” as they take holster broken horses and train over the three days of Cobargo Show.

 

Each participant is celebrated for their horsemanship talents and you will get to see their every step as these leading horse trainers demonstrate their highly personal and specialised methods.

Trainers will select a horse from a hat

on Friday morning and will have an hour and a half in each working session, twice a day, over the three days of the show.  These sessions will equate to the equivalent of 9 hours in total. 

 

Horses will be trained simultaneously in round pens in front of the crowd on the dog arena. Participants will be wearing microphones allowing you to hear the reasoning behind their highly personal and very specialised methods.

 

On the evening of the final day, the trainers will present their horse to the crowd and judges in the main camp draft arena, as well as completing an obstacle course. It is then up to the judges to decide who has demonstrated the most effective and sympathetic training methods.
