5th Annual Friends of Metro Mounted Unit Obstacle Competition in Las Vegas

Think your horse is as good as the ones in Las Vegas’ finest Metropolitan Police Mounted Unit? Test your horse at the 5th Annual Friends of Metro Mounted Unit Obstacle Competition to be held at Horseman’s Park’s main arena on Saturday, March 27. Start time is 9 a.m. with same day sign up held from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m.

There will be 8 to 10 obstacles that riders must complete within the 5 minute time limit. You will be completing against each other and judged on your execution of these obstacles. No information will be given on the obstacles before the competition. They are police related training tools designed to train their horses for use on the Las Vegas Strip and downtown areas. They will be kept secret until March 27.

There will also be a horse microchip clinic between 11 a.m.-1 p.m. and a LVMPD K-9 Unit demonstration at Noon. Participants and observers may purchase concessions, raffle tickets and Friends of Metro Mounted Unit t-shirts, sweatshirts and jackets.
