The National Western Stock Show is excited for the inaugural National Western Youth Ranch Horse Mentor Matchup debuting in January 2019. This event was created to provide an opportunity for local equestrian youth to learn and compete during the National Western Stock Show through relevant hands–on educational activities with their equine partner and top equine professionals.

Taking place on opening day January 12, 2019, the Mentor Matchup will match selected youth with industry professionals who will act as their “coach” for the day. They will be given one-on-one practice time in the morning followed by a competition in the afternoon. A Grand Champion and Reserve Grand Champion will be named and awarded scholarship money of $2,000 and $1,000, respectively.

Up to 10 individuals, ages 14-21, from Colorado and Wyoming will be selected to participate. Selections will be based on:

  • Horse and rider connection and potential
  • Desire to be involved in the equine industry
  • Professionalism
  • Humane and respectful treatment of all animals and individuals

Competition tasks will be determined once finalists are selected and may include: ranch trail obstacles, reining maneuvers and cattle work such as roping, boxing, sorting and/or fence work.
