Road to the Horse 2021 returned to its Texas roots where a sold-out crowd in Fort Worth witnessed the magic of the industry’s most prestigious colt starting competition. There is a charm to the historical Cowtown Coliseum that no modern facility can match. Not only was Road to the Horse founded in that location in 2003, but the history that lives inside the building is unrivaled. To stay connected to its Texas heritage while continuing to serve its dedicated fan base, Road to the Horse is proud to announce an expanded event schedule that will allow both a return to the Kentucky Horse Park and an additional event to be held in Fort Worth, Texas, in 2022.
Road to the Horse 2022 will return to the Alltech Arena on March 24-27, 2022, where Championship competitors will compete for the $100,000 purse. The Kentucky Horse Park has hosted the popular event since 2013, with the space and amenities to host more fans, more horsemanship action, and more vendors. Road to the Horse 2022 tickets will go on sale to Roadies on May 27, and to the public on June 1.
Due to popular demand, Road to the Horse will separate the Wild Card Competition from the Championship event, bringing the Wild Card Competition to Fort Worth, Texas, in September 2022. The separation of the Wild Card competition from the Championship event will expand opportunities for up-and-coming competitors, and allow the Championship event to feature additional clinics, demonstrations, and entertainment. A total of six Wild Cards will be selected to compete in Texas, where the winner will receive an invitation to compete at Road to the Horse 2023.
Road to the Horse is proud to announce these dates:
- Road to the Horse – March 24-27, 2022 – Lexington, Kentucky
- Road to the Horse Wild Card Competition – Fall 2022 – Fort Worth, Texas
“Road to the Horse is well known for its creativity, innovation and most of all, passion. It was a great boost for everyone to crown a Road to the Horse Champion in 2021” states Morris Equine Group President, Tina Battock. “Out of challenges, come opportunity. The Texas event was special, and we couldn’t be more excited to share the Road to the Horse event to an expanded audience in both Kentucky and Texas in 2022.”
Road to the Horse 2021 Wild Card Champion Cole Cameron, secured his place in the Championship Competition by winning the Wild Card title in Fort Worth, Texas.
