Discover HHB Equestrian Trail Park of Southern Nevada.

Barbara H. Callihan, owner of Happy Hoof Beats Equestrian Center, welcomes you to HHB Equestrian Trail Park of Southern Nevada, the Southwest's only IMTCA sanctioned Extreme Mountain Trail course and event center. Designed and built by Mark H. Bolender, three-time Mountain Trail National Champion, this state-of-the-art features 29 trail obstacles.

The vision for HHB Equestrian Trail Park of Southern Nevada is unique and simple. We have created a state-of-the-art park and event center where equestrians six years old and up, on any horse or in hand, from any discipline, and representing any background can congregate to experience Extreme Mountain Trail in a safe, fun, educational, recreational, and competitive environment. Riders and handlers will have the opportunity to use the park as an instrument to develop good horsemanship skills and ultimately build bold and confident partnerships with their horses. All participants are invited to engage with like-minded equestrians to support, encourage, and inspire each other to succeed while developing endearing friendships.

'Navigate' means riders/handles have spent additional time on an IMTCA course with their horse, and while they have not yet mastered the obstacles, they have begun to develop a confident, bold, and safe partnership over the obstacles*. During the intermediate clinic riders/handlers will work on cleaning up and perfecting their horsemanship skills, while continuing to develop their partnership with their horse, including looking at the extended trot and cantaloupe (canter and lope).

IMTCA Two-Day Mountain Trail Judging Clinics

One of the most attractive features of Mountain Trail is the highly regarded judging system, which articulates an objective, fair, and equitable approach. To become certified, judges must complete a judging clinic, and then will be certified by Mark Bolender. Riders and other enthusiasts are also encouraged to complete the judging clinic – riders can develop a deeper understanding of Mountain Trail and how to prepare their horse for Challenges. Other enthusiasts who complete the judging clinic will become part of the Mountain Trail community in Southern Nevada and will have the opportunity to judge at events held at Equestrian Trail Park.
