Rick Lamb Interviews 2007 Road to the Horse Competitors on The Horse Show
Road to the Horse
Join Road to the Horse emcee and radio host Rick Lamb (Phoenix, Ariz.) as he talks with 2007 colt starting challengers Clinton Anderson (Belle Center, Ohio), Stacy Westfall (Mt. Gilead, Ohio) and Chris Cox (Mineral Wells, Texas) Saturday, November 11, 2006 on his nationally syndicated The Horse Show and via download (where it can be downloaded for up to one year) at http://www.thehorseshow.com.
Lamb has interviewed thousands of the horse-industry’s superheroes through his radio programs and his new RFD-TV show, The Horse Show with Rick Lamb. For his most recent special edition radio show, Lamb talked to all three Road to the Horse clinicians at once—asking them all about their past Road to the Horse challenges and their prospects for the 2007 show. As a fun way to break the ice with the three competitors, Lamb asked each to tell three stories—two true stories and one lie. Is it true Westfall has never fallen off during practice for her bridleless and bareback rides? Is it true Cox won his first open bull ride at age 16? And did Anderson really jump a horse off the same cliff as seen in The Man from Snowy River? Listen to each clinician talk about their Road to the Horse experiences in the 52 minute interview then stay tuned to find out which stories are real.
Lamb is excited to host the 2007 Road to the Horse show down—where the three top trainers compete to gentle untouched colts in just one weekend. Lamb has narrated the event since its 2003 start—educating the 5,000+ member crowd with his extensive horse knowledge and acute observation skills.
“Road to the Horse is the Super Bowl of horse training,” Lamb says. “There's suspense, surprises, laughter, disappointments, cheering fans, bright lights, cameras, the whole thing. It's exciting because it's a contest and it's timed. Colt starting is normally neither. Every horse responds differently to training, so the luck of the draw is also a huge factor. And of course, the ability of each trainer to get his horse's respect and trust under these controlled conditions really determines how much training can be done before time runs out. If I wasn't in the middle of it, I'd be in the stands watching.”
Event Producer/Owner Tootie Bland (Merkel, Texas) is excited to announce that Lamb will return as Road to the Horse host. “He has style, class and knowledge,” she says. “There’s only one person in the world that has all the necessary skills to announce at Road to the Horse—and that’s Rick Lamb. Like any great announcer, he delivers the play by play and educates the crowd at the same time. He interprets the action and educates fans about the finer points. He entertains with insider information and a great wit. I’m very honored to have him as a friend and a part of the original Road to the Horse family.”
