Do you have a freaking cool horse? Is it an amazing jumper? Does it want to go be in training with the Maddens for three months at no cost to you? Here’s the fine print:
John Madden Sales, Inc and rider Callie Schott will be offering a chance of a lifetime for several lucky jumper prospects. Selected horses will receive three months free training and board at John Madden Sales to be ridden and brought along by up and coming grand prix rider, Callie Schott.
1. It has to be North American bred. Beezie explains, “I think breeders in North America often have a difficult time getting a prospect hooked up with the right rider that can bring it along to its full potential. Hopefully this will bring a renewed focus on not forgetting to shop at home, as well as abroad.”
2. Horses must be 5 years old in 2012 or older to qualify.
3. You’ve got to send in an audition tape and entry form, available from the Maddens’ website here. Applications are due March 31 and will be narrowed down to five finalists by April 15th. The finalists will be tried by Schott and the winners will be announced by June 1st.
