“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 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 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, ranch riding, team roping and barrel racing.
AQHA appreciates the generous support of Zoetis, Ford, John Deere, Nutrena and the Ranch Horse Journal for supporting these Ranching Heritage events.
