Honoring women’s contribution to training North America’s horses.

Women competing with horses

It’s about time America’s woman horse trainers get the recognition they deserve!
The American Horsewoman’s Challenge shines the spotlight on the incredibly diverse talents of North America’s woman trainers and rewards them for creating a well-balanced horse in the areas of Liberty, Cowboy Dressage and Ranch/Trail Versatility.  Every woman trainer in the United States and Canada has the opportunity to choose their favorite horse, build a bond, and show how far they can take that relationship in just six months.  It’s all about demonstrating their true skill and talent, not about creating just a “one-trick pony.”

Each year, the Challenge selects up to 50 competitors from a continent-wide search for the most talented horsewomen. Any woman trainer is eligible to enter.  The chosen few then vie for $28,000 in cash and prizes.
