Six months ago, the American Competitive Trail Horse Association (ACTHA) launched a nationwide search for America's Favorite Trail Horse, to be aired on HRTV, as a way to bring attention to the country's fine and noble trail horse who has served this nation so magnificently.
Nearly 900 horses put their best hoof forward and showed their talents in 24 auditions in 18 states; 100 were selected to go to the finals, America's Favorite Trail Horse, launched by ACTHA, at the Franklin Family Ranch near Austin Texas, May 8th to the 12th.
There, they received a little coaching from some of the nation's top trainers, so they could look their very best for the cameras, and your vote.
Now, it's up to you! One hundred finalists representing 36 states and 25 breeds will compete for their share of $100,000. Tune in, then vote at www.actha.us.
