I believe all horses (including the untrained selection ones) are available for purchase at the competition. In the past trainers have purchased some of the horses and continued with their training.

Their "owner" is a large horse stud who provides all the horses. I'd imagine they have trainers of their own to continue the education if unsold.

Maverick tarp and flying leadchanges - YouTube

This is a problem I personally have with RTTH.
This horse is impressively handling the tarp and he has somehow managed a flying lead change that is pretty neat. BUT look how inconsistent he is? Frequently flexed behind the vertical - indicating he's been rushed and not properly trained.

Impressive as it is, it's not correct. That is my issue.

Foal
I have worked at RTTH as a volunteer for a few years. Usually the horses get purchased by the trainers like Stacey Westfall, Chris Cox, Dan James but a lot go back to the 6666 ranch which is just a few mins from me and really horse heaven.

I no longer volunteer with RTTH horse because in my opinion it gives people a false notion of what it takes to start a young horse. These horses may be ridden at the show but are them taken back and started over. As well as the winners are most likely predetermined. The last year I worked there Pat Parelli clearly had the quiet horse and I am the farthest from liking Pat you can get. I down right loath the guy to the point I loved when he got bucked off the year before that. His horse that second year was pretty good caught its leads and everything. The winners had nice horses but when one trainer gets off and tries to drag his horse through a water box and never was on a correct lead or loped the rail you have to start questioning things. It's just not my cup of tea and it took me many years to say I'm not going to be part of this and it saddens me I didn't follow my heart sooner.
