Important 2021 Trainer’s Challenge Event Information
We regret to announce that MHARF will NOT be holding the annual Trainer’s Challenge in 2021. Upon review of the horses eligible for the program, we have decided that the majority are too young to benefit from a competitive training venue. We also have many older horses who have been started in the past and are therefore not eligible for the Trainer’s Challenge. We feel it would be in the best interest of these horses to send them into refresher training while keeping them eligible for immediate adoption. As many of you know, due to Covid-19 we were unable to hold the 2020 Trainer’s Challenge as the usual audience event and fundraiser. Because we don’t know yet what this year holds, we have made the difficult decision to suspend the event in 2021. Thank you!
Adopting a Trainer’s Challenge Horse
The horses competing in the Trainer’s Challenge are available for adoption. However, they aren’t available until the day of the event itself. Throughout the day, we hold a silent auction for pre-approved bidders/adopters. Potential bidders/adopters must have an approved application on file in order to receive a bidding number. For more information on pre-qualifying to bid in the silent auction and adopting a Trainer’s Challenge horse, please see our Adopting a Trainer’s Challenge Horse page. If you have more questions about this process, please feel free to Contact Us. We are always more than happy to answer questions!
We hope to see you at the Trainer’s Challenge!
Please don’t forget to pre-qualify so you can adopt!
