Be A Fan 1 Fans!
2014 Zoetis AQHA Ranch Heritage Challenge will be hosted by the Colorado State Fair and sponsored by the AQHA, CSF, Zoetis, Double J Saddlery, Western Horseman, and Professional Choice.  The event will have $15,000 added. 

The Ranching Heritage Challenge highlights the versatility, soundness and willing attitude of American Quarter Horses that are ranch born and raised. First, the goal of the Ranching Heritage Breeders program is to recognize AQHA’s ranching members who have steadfastly continued to maintain the ranching tradition by raising American Quarter Horses for use in working cattle.  Second, through a series of ranch horse competitions and trail trials, the Ranching Heritage Challenge is intended to increase demand for ranch horses by providing an opportunity for ranches and horse owners to compete in a unique ranch horse competition or set of trail trials for a significant purse.

The Ranching Heritage Challenge will include the following classes: Open Working Ranch Horse classes - 4yr old class and 5-6yr old class with limited open divisions; Amateur 4 year old & up and Novice Amateur 4yr old & up classes; and a cowboy Working Ranch Horse class.  We are also offering: Ranch Horse Pleasure -  for the Open, Amateur, and Youth divisions, and Boxing classes for the Amateur, Nov. Amateur, Youth, & Novice Youth divisions.
The horses entered must have been foaled at a Ranching Heritage Breeder’s ranch and nominated by that ranch.
