TVCC was also recently in the news after their instructor for the Equine Science program at TVCC, Wade Black, won a colt-starting championship last month in Forth Worth, Texas. Black took home a $75,000 prize from the “Road to the Horse” competition. NW Horse Report will be publishing a more detailed story about this recent win by Black.
