Five-year-old horses and graduating youth will compete in the next-higher age division at the 2018 Zoetis VRH World.

Junior horses that qualify as 5-year-olds will compete as senior horses in June 2018 at the 2018 Zoetis AQHA Versatility Ranch Horse World Championships. Youth who are 19 as of January 1 will compete as amateurs at the 2018 Zoetis VRH World. The qualifying period runs from January 1, 2017, to February 28, 2018, for the show that is slated for June 14-17, 2018, at the Lazy E Arena in Guthrie, Oklahoma.

There are two ways to qualify for the 2018 Zoetis VRH World:

  1. Earn the predetermined number of qualifying points.
  2. Participate in three or more AQHA-approved Versatility Ranch Horse events.

Verify the number of points a competitor has earned.

AQHA will also hold the 2018 Zoetis AQHA Ranching Heritage Challenge Finals in conjunction with the 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 enrollment payments must be complete.  More qualifying information will be coming soon.
