We are in between a normal trail course and extreme, we fall somewhere in the middle as far as our obstacles are concerned. Colorado Obstacle Challenge Series is truly, the most laid back, helpful group you will encounter in your horse journey. We believe in building confident riders, who, in turn help their horse partners become more confident and trusting themselves. We believe in helping one another. Helping riders grow, and stretch, and move out of their comfort zones. We believe that life is about the journey, not the destination and that every horse and rider can benefit from what we offer. If you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

BreyerWest is a Breyer-sponsored model horse event that includes model horse shows, model horse hobby workshops, demos, and more! Next year’s event takes place February 24-26, 2023 at the National Western Complex in Denver, Colorado, in partnership with the Rocky Mountain Horse Expo. Please be sure to read the important information about the event here.


The Expo Art Show and Literary Corral will be part of a larger promotion of Art, Film, and Books at the Rocky Mountain Horse Expo under the Promotional Direction of the EQUUS Film and Art Fest. This collaboration will height the awareness of Equine Filmmakers, Artists, and Authors.
