New opportunities at the Verde Valley Equine FestivalAnother Successful Verde Valley Equine Festival! We had many new offerings this year—from clinicians to exhibitions, vendors, and even the participation clinics!
We had four outstanding women vying for the title of the 2015 Arizona Cowgirl Spirit Award winner. Holly Shanahan took home that title. Congratulations Holly! A great big congratulations to all of our nominees: Holly Shanahan, Carol Walker Belmore, Samantha Jepson, and Kijla Hardesty. You all embody the spirit of true Arizona Cowgirls!

We are proud to announce the winner of the Arizona Horseman’s Challenge Samantha Jepson! For the third year in a row the winner hails from the southern region of the state. All of the Arizona Horseman's Challenge competitors worked hard this weekend to train their fillies from the T Link Ranch. Samantha Jepson, Brian Bausch, Jason Gifford, Ty Jones, and Chance Stone all did a great job with challenging horses. A big thank you to our judges, Sara Boland, Lee Anderson, Lanny Leach, and Thomas Clover, for observing our competitors train all weekend and determining who would be our big winner this year. If you would like to nominate someone for next year’s Arizona Horseman’s Challenge or Arizona Cowgirl Spirit Award, please email us at verdevalleyequinefestival@yahoo.com.
