The TRAINER CHALLENGE is a competition, which on the one hand, wants to draw attention to the special horses from the far reaches of America and, on the other hand, offers trainers the opportunity to work with a very original and natural horse. The requirements to participate in such a competition are the absolutely fair contact with the partner horse and enough experience in the field of young horse training.
We offer young talented trainers, but also very experienced trainers who have been known as trainers for a long time, the opportunity to present their work to a large fan community.
The horses for the Trainer Challenge have already been selected in October 2019 at the holding facility and will be transported to our trainer in the USA in January. She will prepare these horses for import and give them all the experience they need, to feel safe and comfortable on an airplane. Purposely, the horses will only be trained by one trainer in order to create equal opportunities for all trainers.
NEW 2020: The trainers have the possibility to already get to know and select "their" Mustang in the holding facility in Oregon/USA. Then, they can also prepare "their" Mustang independently for the flight to Germany! A really unique chance for trainers and Mustang!
The Trainer Challenge itself is a competition, which, based on the American original, stands out in its own way from a pure competition/tournament. To take the pressure out of horse training, it is a matter of the heart for us to establish the event as a pro horse event. This means that we organize a competition that is not based on the highest sporting performance of the horses, but where the partnership of the teams is in the foreground, true to the motto:
We make the invisible bond between horse and rider visible!
You can follow the progress of the trainers and mustangs over the whole period of time on FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM, YOUTUBE and here on the website in the timelines of the horses.
The tasks of the Trainer Challenge 2020 The Handling Class shows you what the Mustang can do from the ground and how it can be handled. The trail invites you to judge the calmness of the horses in everyday situations. The horsemanship/dressage task shows how reliably the horses already move under the saddle. Important! All tasks will be divided into difficulty levels, so that the trainer can choose the optimal way for himself and the level of training of "his" Mustang. Likewise, each trainer may also dismount in the competition if his horse becomes insecure.

WHAT IS THE FINAL SHOW MUSTANG MAGIC?
The final show MUSTANG MAGIC is the absolute highlight of the Trainer Challenge. Here, the trainers can show what they have learned in the almost 140 days with "their" Mustang. Only in this test the trainers can freely choose what they want to show with "their" Mustang.
This is where emotional moments are created and incredible things are experienced! Every trainer shows his own little show. All shows together become the MUSTANG MAGIC! An experience that nobody should miss! The final show MUSTANG MAGIC, again, has no limits. We are looking forward to a first-class show, which the trainers have created themselves without any specifications in order to present "their" Mustang in the best possible way.
