Created in partnership with the Texas A&M University Equine Initiative, the Equine I.Q. contest is designed to test a youth’s knowledge in a variety of fields such as horse anatomy, feeding, care, terminology and similar topics.
Entrants participated in three age divisions, Juniors – ages 8 to 10, Intermediate – ages 11 to 13, and Senior – ages 14 to 18. A format requiring both oral and written answers challenged the participant’s ability to not only write well, but respond extemporaneously. Senior finalists presented a five-minute speech on current issues facing the horse industry. A total of $40,000 in scholarships were offered.
