Downunder Extreme Cowboys is an Australian affiliate of the USA based Extreme Cowboy Association, and is based out of Rokewood, Victoria, where there is an outdoor course that would test even the most experienced horse and rider. The committee of Downunder Extreme Cowboys is a dedicated group of volunteers that is bringing Extreme Cowboy Racing to life in Australia.
Extreme Cowboy Racing is an exhilarating test of horse and rider’s versatility in a timed event, open to all breeds of horses and ages of riders. The course is set to test the horse’s adaptability and willingness to work, and the rider’s skills at negotiating obstacles. This is not your average ‘trail’ course that you may have seen at other shows. It is a true test of skill and confidence for the combination. This course is dynamic, fast paced and thrilling! You’ll see horses jump, cross bridges, go through water and drag logs, just to name some of the obstacles.
Extreme Cowboy Racing is open to any type of rider, from the beginners to the professionals. It is truly a family orientated sport, aiming to get everyone involved. Eight levels of competition start at the ‘Young Guns’ for children as young as 7 years, and go all the way up to the ‘Ride Smart’ division which is specifically for non-professionals ages 55 years and older. Rider levels divide the competition, whether that is the Novice or the Professional classes. The number of obstacles and difficulty varies based on the division.
The competition is scored on time and a judge’s assessment of how well the ridden combinations perform each of the required obstacles. This is definitely a sport which is decided on how much time you have spent working on a partnership with your horse and the amount of exposure to all types of experiences.
