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, 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 for a significant purse.
These Challenges are open to any horse bred by an AQHA Ranching Heritage Breeder. 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 race.

Updated Health Requirements: 7 day health is required!
