Guy McLean Wins Road to the Horse 2013
Australian horseman and clinician Guy McLean struggled to hold back the tears as he thanked Road to the Horse Producer Tootie Bland and all those who had helped him accomplish his dreams of a second World Championship of Colt Starting. A sold-out crowd in the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park was on their feet in applause.
Fellow competitors Dan James, Obbie Schlom and Sarah Winters made it a photo finish as the event made the move from Murfreesboro, TN to Lexington, KY for the first time. Cowgirls Obbie Schlom and Sarah Winters were placing first and second after the first two rounds of the World Championship of Colt Starting. Winters was the first competitor to tackle the Obstacle Challenge, and with style and grace she displayed amazing horsemanship. She set the bar high and was the second competitor to ever ride a colt through the Obstacle Challenge in a halter, the first person being her father, 2009 Road to the Horse Champion Richard Winters. Schlom made her mark as a young and talented cowgirl, displaying patience and skill as she guided her 6666 Ranch gelding through each test. Dan James had a gelding that tested his horsemanship skills through the Obstacle Challenge and like a true horseman James always put the best interests of the horse first.
