Ranch Riding


MULTIPLE GOES: A rider may enter this class any number of times, but each go must be on a different horse. Please list the horse's name in parenthesis in the Participant First & Last name field. For example: “Jen Jenson (Blondie)”. All goes will qualify for placed awards, but only one score can be counted toward High Point.

Note that only the Open division of this class includes a payback.

ALSO NOTE: Because this class is very popular, additional goes by one participant on different horses will be wait-listed to make room for others until the week prior to the event. Thank you for your understanding.

Rider Division

This class is not an AQHA Ranch Riding class, but an event that has been modified for the Carmel Valley Ranch Roundup.

Two divisions: Open and Amateur. This is a judged class. This class (also called Ranch Equitation) reflects the versatility, attitude and movement of a working horse. The horse’s performance should simulate a horse riding outside the confines of an arena and that of a working ranch horse. Movements may include the walk, jog and lope in both directions; the extended jog and lope in at least one direction; stops; and a turn to change direction. Equipment to follow AQHA rules.
