Hey there, I betcha thought you were gonna see me doing something fabulous on Durango huh? Well, not this time.
I actually wanted to tell you about a great T.V. reality show coming on soon. NOVEMBER 1st. Put this on your phone with an alert so we can all tune in and see who wins the "Americas Favorite Trail Horse."
I'm just wondering why the Desert Rose, Bossman and Baby Doll weren't asked to try out for this? After all, I'll bet the horses we spent the night on the Pacific Crest Trail matches anything these contestants went through!
So, I thought it would be fun for us all to "try" and tune into this so we can share our most valued opinions! Ha!
This Traci Woodard is a member of my Clinton Anderson club. So, of course they are asking all of us to vote for "Rusty Executive." But, we'll see....I think it will be fun to see what they are doing with this show, don't you?
Traci Woodard, a NWC member from Florida, and her husband's horse Rusty Executive are competing for the title of America's Favorite Trail Horse - a television reality series hosted by American Competitive Trail Horse Association. To be considered for the honor, the duo survived grueling trail challenges and was selected as one of a hundred finalists from 900-plus auditions around the country.
The 100 finalists were filmed this past spring at the national finals for the AFTH series that premiered on HRTV this fall. The show will run for 10 weeks, showcasing 10 riders and horses per episode. Horse lovers around the country will ultimately decide which horse is truly America's favorite trail horse by voting on their favorite horse each week. Final episode airs November 1st at 8pm EST and can be viewed on DISH channel 404 on HRTV or www.actha.tv.
In week 12 the top 10 horses will compete for votes and the AFTH title, with the top horse receiving $25,000, second $15,000 and third $10,000. "It is very touching for us to see what a great horse Rusty has become thanks to what we have learned from Downunder Horsemanship," Traci says, speaking for herself and her husband Mike. "We can't wait to see the results; go 'Roo!"
Voting for AFTH will be held November 1st through 3rd at www.actha.us. Support Traci by voting for #357 Rusty Executive. Club members will recognize the gelding from the now infamous "Most desensitized Horse" contest on the NWC forums.
