Two-Part Ranch Series Returns
Two-Part Ranch Series Returns
The much-anticipated $25,000 open and amateur working western rail stakes classes, sponsored by Headley Quarter Horses, return to the Nutrena AQHA World Championship Show and AQHA Select World Championship Show, presented by Adequan® (polysulfated glycosaminoglycan), at the OKC Fairgrounds in Oklahoma City. In addition, owners of horses competing in the open working western rail at both the Nutrena AQHA and Adequan® Select World and the open ranch rail stakes at the All American Quarter Horse Congress in Columbus, Ohio, will have a shot at an additional $10,000 in cash, courtesy of the Headleys.
Returning in 2023, Headley Quarter Horses will also generously provide two ranch-style Harris Leather saddles to the owners of the overall open and non-pro high-point working western rail horses between the two events.
Two-Part Ranch Series with $10,000 Added
The Nutrena AQHA and Adequan® Select World and the All American Quarter Horse Congress will host a two-part ranch series, with $10,000 awarded, courtesy of Headley Quarter Horses, to the owners of the open high-point horses competing at both the Nutrena AQHA and Adequan® Select World in western working rail and the All American Quarter Horse Congress in open ranch rail stakes. The three highest accumulative point earners in the open division will receive the following cash awards:
First place - $5,000
Second place - $3,000
Third place - $2,000
The owner of the first-place open high-point horse and the owner of the first-place overall non-pro horse between the two events will also win ranch-style Harris Leather saddles.
