Lexington, Kentucky – Two Nevada horsemen sweeped the competition at this year’s Road to the Horse. Dyer, Nevada-based horse trainer Nick Dowers was crowned the 2019 World Champion of Colt Starting and took home the $100,000 winner’s purse. Along with the overall title, Dowers was awarded the Jack Brainard Horsemanship Award for his outstanding ability to observe, analyze, and apply horsemanship methods that are best suited to each individual colt’s personality.
Dowers is a two-time Road to the Horse winner. The 33-year-old grew up on his family’s cattle ranches in Fish Lake Valley (Esmeralda County). After studying at Feather River College in Quincy, California he traveled the west starting colts and working on ranches.
