Road to the Horse


A vision of Steven and Tootie Bland, Road to the Horse was created with passion and perseverance. Steven and Tootie were believers in a message they wanted to share with the world. The message: create a relationship which is based on a foundation of trust with the horse, and everything else can be accomplished. Follow the journey and witness an accumulation of a lifetime of passion and knowledge put to the test as elite clinicians from around the world face off for the coveted World Championship of Colt Starting title. Fans witness partnerships develop before their very eyes, they witness the setbacks and witness the triumphs, as competitors build a relationship with an untouched 3-year-old American Quarter Horse which will then be put to the ultimate test, where only one can walk away with the World Championship of Colt Starting title.

Paul Frazer Memorial Horse Show


The Paul Frazer Memorial Combined Test and Dressage Competition is dedicated to a former CKRH Board Member who for years worked to remove physical barriers to handicapped young people in our schools. Paul designed the first handicapped bus in the Fayette County Public Schools, and his design later served as a model for all handicapped buses in Kentucky. As Director of Maintenance for Fayette County schools, Paul oversaw the construction of handicapped ramps, installation of elevators and other structural remodeling to ensure access for every student. Paul's work with the handicapped and his interest in horses came together in the 1980s when he and his wife, Betty, accompanied a friend to her riding lesson. Paul was so impressed with CKRH that he volunteered to help do whatever was needed. We miss seeing Paul, but evidence of his work is around us always. This annual show is dedicated to his memory. It's our way of saying, “Thank you,” and maybe it is his way of ensuring that CKRH continues to provide recreational, therapeutic and socialization opportunities to students of all ages.
