“The Ranching Heritage Challenges highlight the versatility, soundness and willing attitude of American Quarter Horses that are ranch-born and -raised,” said Kim Lindsey, AQHA director of ranching. “Not only do the Challenges showcase ranch-raised horses, they also offer competitors significant purses and prizes.”
The Challenges are open to any horse bred by an AQHA Ranching Heritage Breeder and enrolledin the program. AQHA Ranching Heritage Breeders are breeders who have been breeding American Quarter Horses for at least 10 years and whose horses are primarily bred to work on a cattle ranch.
Anyone can own and show these eligible and enrolled horses in the Challenges.
The Challenges offer multiple divisions for various ages and skill levels for both horse and rider. Classes include working ranch horse and ranch riding; some Challenge events also offer team roping and barrel racing.
