The next Zoetis AQHA Ranching Heritage Challenge is slated for August 31 at the Colorado State Fair in Pueblo, Colorado. This year’s event will feature an AQHA Ranching Heritage Team Roping.
The Colorado State Fair presents the Zoetis AQHA Ranching Heritage Challenge with $15,000 in added money and $1,500 added to the team roping, plus jackpot and other prizes.
Coverage of the event will be provided by AQHA’s Ranch Horse Journal at www.aqha.com/ranching.
Entries are due August 11.
“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.”
Zoetis AQHA Ranching Heritage Challenges are open to any horse bred by an AQHA Ranching Heritage Breeder and enrolled in 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 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.
AQHA appreciates the generous sponsorship of Zoetis, Ford, John Deere, Nutrena and the Ranch Horse Journal in supporting these Ranching Heritage events.
