Congratulations to Dale Clearwater – winner of 2013 Trainer Challenge for second time. A full house at the Ag Centre watched as Dale managed to secure his Champion title for year two of the Trainer Challenge. This was the first of this type of competition for the other two trainers and they both had a great finishing round.
Canada’s Ultimate Cowhorse Event was a huge success, after some recalculating the placings were as follows:
1st place – John Swales from Millarville, AB payout of $6000
2nd place – Brad Pedersen from Lacombe, AB payout of $3000
3rd place – Suzon Schaal from Calgary, AB payout of $2050
4th place – Rod Thiessen from Estevan, SK payout of $1650
Apologies from the organizing committee as the totals were recalculated designating John Swales the Champion. Thank you to all the entries for their understanding and especially to Brad Pedersen and John Swales for the gentlemen they are.
Saskatoon Prairieland Park and volunteers from Saskatchewan Horse Federation, the Western College of Veterinary Medicine and various equine breed groups are working together to facilitate this three-day 2nd annual Saskatchewan Equine Expo. The objective is to present equine related lectures, presentations, demonstrations, entertainment and opportunities focusing on the Equine Industry. Whether participants and spectators are amateurs or professionals, they will experience the newest products, techniques and technology.
NEW in 2013:
Canada’s Ultimate Cow Horse Competition
A new event for 2013, this competition will include three different disciplines - herd work, reined work and cow work. The herd work, or cutting, comes first, followed by the reining pattern in the reined work. The signature cow work, often called fence work, is where the horse holds, or boxes, the cow at the end of the arena, then turns it on the fence and finally circles it both ways in the arena. Top horses and riders will compete for prize money and the Canada’s Ultimate Cow Horse title.
A specialized tour and/or seminar at the Equine Centre at WCVM. Pre-registration is required and a limited number will be accepted. Registration will include tour and return transportation from Prairieland Park.
