The Riderless Horse: one of the oldest and most moving military traditions in a full honor funeral is the riderless, caparisoned horse. The horse is led behind the caisson wearing an empty saddle with the rider’s boots reversed in the stirrups, indicating the warrior will never ride again.

Let’s all join in this Memorial Day weekend to remember the heroes we have lost and the families they leave behind.

Thanks to the 3d U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard) for this portrait of the Riderless Horse. Photo by Shelli Breidenbach Photography.

It is with great sadness that we report the AzHC & Expo scheduled for October 1-4, 2021 will not be held. All future Expos are on indefinite hold as we look at ways to restructure the event to continue to bring horse lovers together.
We want to thank everyone that gave their time, effort, support, patience and kindness over the years. All monies that have been paid to AzHC & Expo for tickets/vendor spaces, etc. will be refunded and we are working hard to process those quickly.
We are truly blessed to have met and worked with such great horsemen/horsewomen and hope to continue our partnership in the future.

Regretfully, we announce the cancellation of the Az. Horseman's Challenge & Expo 2020. The uncertainty of the Covid 19 Pandemic, Arizona closures and circumstances beyond our control force us to make this unhappy decision. The safety of our trainers, clinicians, volunteers and attendees is our highest priority in making this difficult decision.
We are moving forward with plans for our 2021 Az. Horseman's Challenge & Expo for October 1-3, 2021.
Thank you for your support, understanding and patience in these trying times.

Bronc Riding Nation

On Memorial Day ... we owe our horses, too. 🌺

I SPOKE TO YOU IN WHISPERS

I spoke to you in whispers
As shells made the ground beneath us quake
We both trembled in that crater
A toxic muddy bloody lake

I spoke to you and pulled your ears
To try and quell your fearful eye
As bullets whizzed through the raindrops
And we watched the men around us die

I spoke to you in stable tones
A quiet tranquil voice
At least I volunteered to fight
You didn't get to make the choice

I spoke to you of old times
Perhaps you went before the plough
And pulled the haycart from the meadow
Far from where we're dying now

I spoke to you of grooming
Of when the ploughman made you shine
Not the shrapnel wounds and bleeding flanks
Mane filled with mud and wire and grime

I spoke to you of courage
As gas filled the Flanders air
Watched you struggle in the mud
Harness acting like a snare

I spoke to you of peaceful fields
Grazing beneath a setting sun
Time to rest your torn and tired body
Your working day is done

I spoke to you of promises
If from this maelstrom I survive
By pen and prose and poetry
I'll keep your sacrifice alive

I spoke to you of legacy
For when this hellish time is through
All those who hauled or charged or carried
Will be regarded heroes too

I spoke to you in dulcet tones
Your eye told me you understood
As I squeezed my trigger to bring you peace
The the only way I could
And I spoke to you in whispers ....

Neil Andrew, Veteran & Poet

In the meantime...Less than a week to go!! The 2021 Virtual Symposium has a total of 8 lectures scheduled on Saturday and Sunday. These webinars are free, but will only be available live. See the topics and speakers and sign up for the webinars at:
This place is an all around fantastic experience!! I watched a documentary last night that I thought might be worth mentioning to you all. It's called The Great Flip-Off and is centered around a small community of ba****ck riders that come from generations of circus performers. These guys have some of the strongest bonds with their horses that I have ever seen! Thought the film did a wonderful job of showing how we all feel about our animals. Highly recommend watching this! It's available on VOD
Is there an update on Jeff cook?
My apologies to everyone the kiddos disturbed yesterday. They’ll stay out of the covered arena area.
I'm going to go photograph Shari Rowe ... should be fun!!!
I am super excited to be presenting at the AZ Horseman's Challenge and Expo this April! YAY!
At the 9th annual Willow Springs Youth Horse Expo.
I would like to run an idea by the folks of the Arizona Horsemans Challenge and each of the trainers at this year's Challenge of the Champions. If Travis, JJ, Thomas, Samantha or Lanny are interested, I'd like to plan on doing 5 From Start To Finish clinics, each one of them partnering with one of the challenge participants. I think people would gain a great deal of knowledge and it would be a blast. Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks everyone!
We want to compliment the committee that organized and put on this event! It was very well run and as a first time vendor, we were made to feel very welcome! The facility you chose was awesome! We just moved to AZ, but have done shows for 12 years, so we know that weather is beyond the show management's control and can effect attendance. Thanks for all your efforts and hard work!
Who won?
