IMTCA Challenge, hosted by Dream Feather Horsemanship Centre, Ontario, Canada @ Dream Feather Horsemanship Centre
Sep 8 all-day

Welcome to the last International Mountain Trail Challenge in Ontario for 2019

What to expect at a Challenge

A competitive event for Mountain Trail and Extreme Mountain Trail is known as a challenge. A challenge tests a horse and rider’s ability to navigate both natural and man-made obstacles in a safe manner and with technical skills that demonstrate great horsemanship.
There will be up to three levels of difficulty that are designed to challenge but not intimidate riders.
Attire and tack required for participating must be neat, clean and in good working order.
The overall purpose of the Trail Challenge is to promote good horsemanship skills and provide an educational venue for equestrians.
Trail Challenge tests an equine and rider on their ability to work as a team and navigate obstacles which they might experience on a trail.
The horse and rider will encounter various obstacles during a Trail Challenge. Sometimes they will encounter difficult trail situations which will better prepare the equine and rider in the real world.
Through education and experience, riding becomes more pleasurable, while safety and fun are encouraged.
All challenges must be judged by IMTCA certificated judges. A judge must have the ability to evaluate horsemanship skills such a rider’s skill in controlling and maintaining the equine. The judge should be also familiar with the natural movement of the equine.
