Foxcreek Horsemanship Challenge

  • Do you know your horse’s resting heart rate?
  • Can you correctly identify the parts of a horse?
  • Why is it important to post on the correct diagonal?

This is just a sample of the questions you might find on the written portion of this year’s Foxcreek Horsemanship Challenge. The Horsemanship Challenge is open to all Medal finals qualifiers who wish to participate. It is designed to test the overall horseman and covers many aspects of general horsemanship. Phase I is the written test that will be given Friday evening. Questions on the written test include topics relating to conformation, equipment, Hunter/Jumper/Equitation rules, and general horse care. The goal of the Horsemanship Challenge is to encourage everyone to learn more about basic horsemanship to promote a more educated, universal horseman. The top eight scorers from Phases I will go on to Phase II. This phase consists of a “hands-on” practicum. Participants will be asked to demonstrate basic horsemanship skills on a live horse. Safe horse handling, ease with the animal, and proper technique will be emphasized. Previous Horsemanship Challenge first place winners are not eligible to compete in the Challenge but are welcome to take the written test if they wish.

The Junior receiving the highest score on the written test will receive the Barbara Arkin Award
