(Lamar, Colorado; November 22, 2016) The Lamar Community College Horse Training & Management program held its Fall Show on Friday, November 18, at the LCC Equine Complex.
Students in the Horse Training & Management (HTM), Equine Business Management (EBM), and Barrel Horse Training programs demonstrated their skills and how well they have trained their horses during the semester.
Freshman HTM and all EBM students performed reining patterns. Sophomore HTM students had the opportunity to showcase their specialized training horses including those trained for barrels, cutting, roping, and as a reining cow horse. Students in the Barrel Horse Training program performed the barrel racing pattern.
This was the last show for sophomores in each program, who will be going on their internship in the spring semester.
Freshmen HTM students will increase to two colts in the spring semester. Freshmen EBM and Barrels students will continue to train the horses that they showcased on Friday and demonstrate their improvement at the Spring Show.
“This is a great event for our students to showcase their hard work,” said HTM instructor Jason Kravig. “Their parents are able to come watch them show and the horse owners come down as well.”
Horses other than those owned by individual students were provided by Freeman Ranch, Russell Freeman, Dude Kissel, Brett Shawcroft, Natalie Snyder, Mike Heitmann, Hayton Ranch, Ralph Berry, Joan Hathcock, Sally Schwartz, Josh Emick, Chad Hawkins, and CS Cattle Company.
