The class winners from the Zoetis Ranching Heritage Challenge Finals.

The class winners from the Zoetis Ranching Heritage Challenge Finals.

The Zoetis AQHA Ranching Heritage program recognizes the quality American Quarter Horse ranch horses being raised on working cattle ranches. These horses demonstrate the athletic ability, soundness and cow sense needed to not only work on a ranch, but also perform in the show ring and rodeo arena. On June 17, these horses were on display at the Zoetis AQHA Ranching Heritage Challenge Finals.

Ranching Heritage Breeders produce horses that are exclusively eligible to compete for more than $100,000 each year in Zoetis AQHA Ranching Heritage Challenges, as well as for other awards open only to Ranching Heritage-bred horses.
