Events & Schedule

Come and enjoy learning something new!

If you love horses, you will enjoy watching experienced horse trainers from around the Country gentle, start, and ride unbroke horses in just a few hours. How is this possible? These horse trainers are not only very talented, but they are using Natural Horsemanship methods. This technique speeds up the process of starting and gentling a horse. Our event is not only to entertain you, but also to educate you about how a horse thinks, operates, and responds to a Horse Trainer’s cues using body language. Watch and listen as each trainer takes a turn explaining what they are doing and why, as they all work their horses at the same time. You will see the unique personalities of not only the horses, but also of the Contestants, and their original concepts to starting colts.

It is Colt Starting Challenge USA’s goal to provide a forum for Horse Trainers from around the Country to compete at our events, in order to find out at each event, who wins the Champion Trainer buckle. Trainers gain cumulative points at each event towards participation in our National Finals in December during the NFR, at the prestigious Roper Cowboy Marketplace Trade Show in Las Vegas at the Mandalay Bay.

Colt Starting Challenge USA was founded by expert Horse Trainer Russell Beatty. His wife Cristy Beatty is the announcer for each event. They currently tour the Country to produce 20 to 25 Colt Starting Challenge USA events each year. For more information, see our web site at and our Facebook page for videos of our events.
