1 Ranch Conformation: group class where each horse and exhibitor will enter the ring individually and walk to the judge, trot away from the judge in an arch and line up head to tail for individual inspection, leaving enough room for the judge to safely walk around the horse. Horses will be judged on presentation, behavior and correct conformation with respect to form to function for a ridden ranch horse.
Horses will be shown in a tidy working halter.
2. Ranch Rail: group class on the rail judging the walk, jog, lope and back. There will be asked for an extension at the jog and lope. The judge will be looking for a flowing natural movement. You will need to show your ability to bring your horse back from an extended jog/lope to a normal jog/lope.
The Walk/Jog class will be judged at the walk, jog, extended jog and back.
3. Ranch Pleasure : Individual class on the rail with signs on the ground/wall that tell you which gait to show in as you go around te arena and back. You will be required to show at the walk, extended walk, trot, extended trot, lope, extended lope, stop, back and a 180 turn to reverse.
For the In Hand division this class will be shown on the longe.
4. Ranch Riding: an individual pattern class where the horse/rider will be judged on its ability to perform a pattern consisting of a free flowing walk, a jog, an extension to a trot, a lope, an extension to a canter and the transitions between these gaits. The horse may also be required to change leads (simple or flying change), stop, perform a 360 turn, cross poles, side pass, etc. according to the pattern set for the show.
5. Ranch Reining: will be based on ASHA reining patterns where you show your horse’s ability to show large fast and small slow circles, spins, stops, roll backs and lead changes. There will be a Walk/Jog pattern.
6. Ranch Trail: If weather permits, Ranch Trail will be an outdoor event held on a natural obstacle course. The pattern of obstacles will consist of log crossings, side passing down logs, stepping up and down banks, dry creek crossings, backing up a creek bank, crossing a bridge, opening and closing a gate, walking over uneven ground, trough trees, turning your horse in an elevated box, with some open pasture jogging and loping.
If weather doesn’t permit we will set up a trail course in the indoor arena.
The trail will be scored from 0 to 10 on each obstacle. If you don’t attempt a certain obstacle you get a 0 score for that obstacle but still get a score on the obstacles you do attempt.
If you’re attempting an obstacle and your horse refuses 3 times, you score a 0 zero on that obstacle and will need to move on to the next obstacle.
