    Congratulations to all our participants...it's all about the horses! 120 days boiled down to one day of showing and the scores were very close. All of our Trainers received a bag of Godfrey's feed, a custom plaque and a custom GERL 2015 Challenge shirt.

We made a 6 minute video of the Rescue Challenge, starting with last year’s pictures and going through the current event, up to the actual competition.  There’s upbeat background music that will make your heart beat a little faster. The video was played at the “Meet and Greet” for the trainers on Friday night and also the next day before the competition began.  We think that it is a nice addition to our event.

We hope you enjoy it!
