About the Horse Skillathon
The Horse Skillathon is an innovative contest designed for students to showcase their knowledge of horses and the horse industry. Contestants apply their book knowledge during a written exam and then perform tasks at hands-on stations. Finally, during a speech round they demonstrate their ability to communicate knowledge of industry issues. The Horse Skillathon is an exciting way for horse enthused students to demonstrate their talents and horse knowledge in a competitive event.
