So Just Exactly What is Ranch Horse Pleasure?


Well…..nobody is really certain since the event has never been held before. But one of the first in the nation will occur at the Quarter Horse Show at Rancho Murieta on March 8. I plan to show in this event on Chase and Hook. I think it’s best described as a combination of ranch riding and ranch trail. Doesn’t that sound like something that’s right up our ally? It includes extended gaits, sliding stops, turns, even lead changes (which can be simple or flying), combined with gates, lope-overs, etc. Check the AQHA web site for a description of the event. I’ve included this photo because it shows a horse that’s really moving out, yet appears bridled and focused.
