Does my horse have to be nominated to compete in the Ranching Heritage Challenge?
No! For 2014, horses do not have to be nominated to the Ranching Heritage Challenge to compete. These shows are an entry-fee only event with the majority of the entry fee being paid back in the purse, along with $10,000 in added money from AQHA and valued sponsors.
