We are delighted to congratulate 158 finishers in our 2020 COTH Lose The Leathers Challenge in November.
It wasn’t just the task of completing 12 rides without stirrups that was challenging; it was the late nights in the cold and dark; balancing school, work and family; and injured horses and riders.
But through it all, riders across all ages and levels felt the support of everyone in the group.
Throughout November, we loved following along with their progress in our Facebook group, and enjoyed meeting a few participants and asking the experts to share their tips.
Below are photos of some of the finishers. Congratulations to all! We hope the challenge inspired you and allowed you to spend more time at the barn with the horses you love, especially during these difficult times.
