Every two years there is a world championship in the sport, even though it is not an Olympic Sport. There is a real challenge in the marketing of the sport to the general public, especially in North America.
In a way I would like to position Chester as the best trainer in the entire Gift of the Horse contest. Some trainers, like Jane Savoie, provided DVDs and books instead of actual hands on horse time.
Others directed winners back to the website organizers, and the feedback from participants was disappointment in the lack of response.
