American Quarter Horse colts are in the spotlight March 26-29 in Lexington, Kentucky.

The American Quarter Horse Association is a proud sponsor of the 2015 Road to the Horse. This year’s event, March 26-29 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky, once again features a remuda of 3-year-old American Quarter Horses from AQHA Ranching Heritage Breeder Four Sixes Ranch.

The 2015 Road to the Horse Wild Card competition kicks off the event March 26 and features six horsemen who chose a horse last year from the AQHA remuda, a group of 3-year-old Quarter Horses with little-to-no prior handling. The six competitors have spent the past 12 months building a relationship with their selected partner in preparation for the Wild Card competition at the March event. One of the six will earn the right to go up against Chris Cox and Jim Anders to compete for the coveted title of world champion colt starter and a check for $100,000.

The American Quarter Horses in the Road to the Horse remuda are selected from the legendary Four Sixes Ranch, an AQHA Ranching Heritage Breeder from Guthrie, Texas, where the horses are carefully bred for cow sense, speed and agility. The Four Sixes is one of the original Zoetis-AQHA Best Remuda Award winners and an AQHA 75-year breeder. The ranch has built time-tested pedigrees for more than 140 years and provides Road to the Horse with some of the finest-bred horses.

At Road to the Horse, spectators witness each clinician’s horsemanship abilities as they saddle, bridle and ride the 3-year-olds through a series of obstacles, including a grand finale trail course that will determine the 2015 world champion colt starter.
