About TVCC's Performance Horse Series:


TVCC’s Performance Horse Series is focused on providing a fun competition where grade school, high school and college aged kids can develop ranching, horse training and rodeo skills that could lead to part time, or full time employment working in the equine and ranching industries. In this program grade school and high school students get a taste of one of TVCC’s most popular pathway certificates called the “Performance Horse Selection, Training Marketing and Sales.”  In this certificate students not only learn how to develop a business plan to prepare a horse to market and sale, but also learn horsemanship , stockmanship, roping, team work, speed regulation and stock dog skills that can help save ranchers time and money, as well as generate new sources of income for cattle producers. In our fast pace society this is an opportunity for parents and kids to slow down and take the time to set a solid foundation in family relationships, ranching skills and the basic fundamentals needed in equine competitions. Parents of kids in the program are also allowed to enter competitions and play with their kids, with their entry fees going to year end prizes for the kids.  TVCC’s performance horse program works closely with the Working Ranch Horse program through U of I 4-H extension.  Both TVCC and the WRH share the same mission and vision in providing a positive learning environment while equipping kids with the knowledge and skills to be productive in the equine and ranching industry.  


The Main focus of TVCC's Performance Horse Series is to:

     1) Create a sport promoting the different areas needed to be successful ranch roping.    

     2) Set a solid foundation in young kids and horses getting ready to enter the rodeo arena.  

     3) Provide a fun atmosphere where parents and kids can play together at any age, or skill level.  

     4) Help kids develop skills in the equine and ranching industry that could lead to part time, or full time employment.  

     5) Equip kids with the knowledge and skills to select, train, market and sale a horse in a performance horse sale.  

     6) Offer an educational series for high school students with college credits available
