Weber, the eight-time USEF National Four-In-Hand Combined Driving Champion, has joined together with the world’s most recognized and admired horsemen and women to contribute prize packages for their biggest fans. The contest is being sponsored through the Gift of the Horse, a unique and exciting event designed to be fun, interactive, educational and most importantly give back to the equine industry through the generosity of Gift of the Horse sponsors and donors. 100% of proceeds raised through Gift of the Horse will go directly to The American Youth Horse Council which impacts over 400,000 children in programs such as 4-H, National High School Rodeo, Pony Club and most Breed/Youth Organizations.
"Chester Weber is an icon and an inspiration to horse owners of all breeds and disciplines. I've had the pleasure of watching Chester perform in person and the thrill and excitement the crowds experience when Chester comes thundering into the ring is unparalleled," says Jacqueline L. Robbins, President of Equine Publishing, LLC. "He is an asset to Gift of the Horse and it is an honor to have him in the line up of top horsemen that have generously contributed amazing prize packages. Spending two full days with Chester Weber and his team is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity."
Each of the trainers on Gift of the Horse have selected a prize package that they want to give to their biggest fan, and most of the prize packages are valued between $500 - $2,000. To enter to win two days of training with Weber, click on Weber’s photo on the Gift of the Horse website and then write a short essay explaining why you are his number one fan. Each essay and photo will be posted on the Gift of the Horse Facebook page the following Friday and fans will have one week to "Like" their favorites.
Every week, two essays from each trainer will move on to the semi-finals (one from public voting and one from a random drawing) and a panel of judges will select the grand prize winner for each trainer the first week of August. Weber’s prize package includes two full days of training alongside the combined driving legend, and he will coach the winner through the process of driving his champion four-in-hand team. The winner may also choose to bring their own horses and get expert help in the areas they need it the most. Travel arrangements and accommodations are the responsibility of the winner and there is no charge to enter the contest.
Weber, the United States’ most decorated combined driver, said he was pleased to be taking part in the Gift of the Horse. “I love the sport of combined driving and sharing my passion and expertise with others is something I love doing. The great thing about the Gift of the Horse is all the money raised on the website goes directly to the American Youth Horse Council. I certainly look forward to meeting the winner and know we will have two great and productive days of training,” Weber said.
