What an incredible journey it has been! Nearly 1,000 horse and rider teams from all over the U.S. participated in a journey that has now brought 100 finalists down to 10. America’s Favorite Trail Horse will soon be crowned!
No matter what breed of horse, each horse and rider team showed its own special bond. “The dressage horse makes a wonderful trail horse. She’s an awesome horse. I’ve had a great time on her. I’m really glad I branched out of the arena and tried something new,” states Marjorie Chema about her horse, Emmy Lee.
Many friendships and memories were made along the way that will last forever. It has been an incredible experience that will remain with all contestants forever. Top Ten Finalist Julie Moore was so excited to be a part of the Finals: “What a ride! Competing in the America’s Favorite Trail Horse event has been an incredible experience – Thanks for the memories, ACTHA”.
Each finalist had the opportunity to learn and be coached from some of America’s Top Equestrian Clinicians at Franklin Family Ranch in Blanco, TX and this made it a once in a lifetime opportunity.
Be sure to tune into ACTHA.TV on November 22 for a very special announcement and don’t miss your chance to cast your vote on the Final voting episode at 7pm CST on November 29. Find out which horse will be crowned America’s Favorite Trail Horse.
