W-W Livestock has been named an official Round Pen Sponsor for the 2011 Road to the Horse Legends to be held in Murfreesboro, Tenn., Feb. 25-27.
Road to the Horse is a one-of-a-kind competition that takes three internationally known, elite horse trainers and clinicians and puts them up against each other for the esteemed title of Road to the Horse Champion. These competitors choose a horse out of the remuda, a group of 10 three-year-old Quarter Horse geldings, and they begin building a relationship between horse and human. Unlike a horse show, these competitors are judged not only on a final test of skill, but the means to the end result. The goal of Road to the Horse is to teach horsemen and women that natural horsemanship is a kinder, gentler way of working with horses.
As the Official Round Pen Sponsor, WW will provide the three round pens used in the arena as well as the panels and gates used during the competition and holding pens behind the scenes.
W-W products were selected to help ensure the safety of the Road to the Horse remuda and because of the reputation for easy set-up and use.
W-W Livestock Systems began doing business in 1945 designing and manufacturing high quality livestock handling equipment for stockmen and horsemen. It is the product of choice for professional rodeo associations and is supplying the IFR and NHSFRA along with all major stock shows and expos across the United States.
