The 2024 Chisholm Challenge, January 8-10, will be the 20th Anniversary of Chisholm Challenge. Since the beginning, the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo has donated the John Justin Arena and other amenities in support of Chisholm Challenge (CC). The support of CC by the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo was largely due to W. R. “Bob” Watt, Jr. Bob Watt was president and general manager of the Southwestern Exposition and Livestock Show – more commonly known as the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo – for thirty three years. Watt passed away in November of 2022. He played a pivotal role in starting Chisholm Challenge at the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo in 2004.
The three day event begins on Monday – January 8 in 2024 – with The American Quarter Horse Association and National Snaffle Bit Association Equestrians with Disabilities Competition at John Justin Arena. All trail competition events are in the Will Roger’s Memorial Coliseum Arena.
Tuesday begins the Chisholm Challenge Equestrians with Disabilities Competition in the John Justin Arena, with the Working Trail Course events still in Will Roger’s Memorial Coliseum Arena. Wednesday wraps up the remaining events in JJ Arena and any remaining trail competitors in Will Roger’s MCA.
More on Chisholm Challenge next Monday.
Ride on and ride for hope.
