AQHA will also hold the 2017 Zoetis AQHA Ranching Heritage Challenge Finals in conjunction with the 2018 Zoetis VRH World. Ranching Heritage Challenges highlight the versatility, soundness and willing attitude of American Quarter Horses that are bred by AQHA Ranching Heritage Breeders. To be eligible to compete in the challenges, horses must have been bred by a Ranching Heritage Breeder, plus all payments must be complete. In 2018, there is more than $90,000 in prize money offered during the six qualifying challenges and finals.

To qualify for the finals, a horse must simply compete at any one of the 2017 Challenges. To view the challenges for 2017, visit
