Equibrand AQHA Ranching Heritage Challenge

Date: Jan 20 - Jan 22, 2024
Time: 9:00 AM

AQHA Ranching Heritage Challenge

Ranching Heritage Challenge classes will run concurrent with the AQHA Horse Show and NRCHA Show.

“Ranching Heritage Challenges showcase the versatility, soundness and willing attitude of American Quarter Horses that are bred, raised and utilized for ranch work,” said Karen McCuistion, AQHA senior director of member programs. “The Challenge program is designed to recognize and reward horses and exhibitors perpetuating ranching heritage and the spirit of the working American Quarter Horse.”

Ranching Heritage Challenges are open to any horse bred by an AQHA Ranching Heritage Breeder and fully 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 and ranch riding; some Challenge events also offer ranch cutting, team roping and barrel racing. New last year - steer stopping and breakaway roping!

AQHA appreciates the generous sponsorship of John Deere and Nutrena in supporting these Ranching Heritage events.
