Ranch Obstacle Series
January 5 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
f we have bad weather and road conditions become unsafe for one of our shows we will reschedule for Feb 16th. So keep that weekend open just in case.
Sign ups 8am. Walkthroughs prior to each division. First walkthrough at 9am. Patterns will be posted online. Placings posted and awards given out shortly after each class has been completed.
ALL BREEDS WELCOME
You must be in a western saddle and western attire. There will be some drag obstacles that would not be possible to complete without a saddle horn.
Novice division will be walk trot with no jumps. This will be a TRUE Novice class. If you have any question about whether or not you should be in the novice class, please contact Ashley. This class is meant to be saved for those who are very new to obstacles and may have never done any cattle work before.
Prohibited obstacles: Tarps, plastic bags, rocking bridges, anything designed to intentionally spook a horse.
Example obstacles. Gate, side-pass a log, back through, dead fall, bridge, lope over poles, drag, carry an object from point “A” to point “B”, spin etc…
Each Ranch Obstacle Pattern will include eight obstacles. Upon completion of the pattern a cow will be released into the arena and you will have two minutes to complete your cattle work.
The cattle work will be one “job” like driving between two designated objects. Example: two panels or into a pen.
Cattle will be handled and treated as if you were working on a ranch and are to be stressed as little as possible. High scores will be rewarded to those that complete the task in a calm and correct manner with minimal stress to the horse and cow.
Both the obstacles and the cattle work will be scored on the same score card and added together for your overall score.
LIMITED TO 35 HORSES
One horse can be ridden in all of the divisions as long as the rider is suited for the division.
FIVE divisions. Please read flyer for pricing and other details!
Additional Rules and even more details to follow!
