2021 ULTRAMOX Freedom to friendship Stallion Challenge

KHH are proud to present the 2021 Ultramox Freedom to Friendship Stallion Challenge and the amazing trainers, student trainers,and horses who have made this competition a very exciting one.

This competition has not been without it’s challenges and the tenacity and dedication shown by each of our competitors prove why they were selected to compete in our annual Stallion Challenge.  Our professional trainers, along with their mentor students, have raised the bar again this year and produced some incredible results with their once wild Kaimanawa stallions.

The postponement and eventual cancellation of Equifest meant our trainers had to step up yet again and submit their entries via video. They have done us proud with their achievements and for helping us showcase the amazing train-ability and versatility of the kaimanawa breed.
