Ok the answer I used was from equine science but I will take it since its from feeding and care. Denver's western nationals right? A bummer missouris considered eastern :( we went to Kentucky just this past month for nationals with horse bowl. Only allowed to go once for horse bowl so I'm going with hippology this coming year hopefully. Are you allowed to compete more than once in western nationals for horse bowl?
