RHAA Ranch Horse Competition

RHAA Ranch Horse Competition

Join us for the Ranch Horse Association of America’s National Finals. Where qualified riders & horses gather together to compete for the ultimate title in their division. These elite duos will be showcasing their remarkable abilities to accomplish tasks of a variety of skillsets – all within one run. The Ranch Horse Association of America sanctions a number of shows over the course of a year, in which produces qualifiers who are eligible to compete in the RHAA National Finals. Classes range from entry level to advanced. Be sure to come watch these elite duos compete for the prized title in each division.

Competitions include a dry work pattern made up of circles, spins, stops, lead changes, and rollbacks. Once the pattern is completed, riders box a cow on the end of the arena, then drive it down the fence and turn the cow each direction. To complete the run, contestants then rope the cow and drag it several feet to show the horse's ability to work the cow.
