Georgetown, Texas - The search is on for the next great American horseman through Project Cowboy, and Jodie Fuchs of Blanco, Texas, is vying for the title and all the fame that comes with it.
Project Cowboy, jointly produced by Tootie Bland Productions and Patti Colbert Enterprises, will be held October 8-10 in Fort Worth, Texas, at the Will Rogers Equestrian Center’s Watt Arena. Project Cowboy is a competition open to all horsemen or women who demonstrate exceptional horsemanship, communication skills and live by the western lifestyle.
Fuchs will be competing for $10,000 cash, a Martin trophy saddle and a Gist trophy buckle, as well as an invitation to appear at the 2011 Road To The Horse Legends World Championship and 2011 Extreme Mustang Makeover Events, and other major equine events and expos as a clinician.
Project Cowboy will include several rounds of competition that will challenge the horsemanship and communication skills of the competitiors. All competitors, riding their own horse, will be challenged to showcase their talents in the pen and on the screen. Elimination rounds will progress by offering more diverse and challenging obstacles to prove who will receive the title of “the Great American Horseman.”
“Project Cowboy is a talent search looking for the individual that combines great horsemanship skills with a personality that can connect with an audience on television or in a clinic setting,” says Patti Colbert. “Project Cowboy will find the great American horseman or woman and make them famous by launching their career at some of the biggest equine events of 2011.”
