Ranch Horse Pleasure
The new APHA approved class for everyone
who thought they didn't have a Show Horse...
or a horse to show!
UPHC is excited to be offering the newly approved Ranch Horse Pleasure class at all 2014 UPHC shows,* but what exactly is Ranch Horse Pleasure?
Ranch Horse Pleasure is a scored pattern class, but still judged on the horse’s movement. Exhibitors work a pattern individually. There are many different maneuvers that could be called for within the patterns—there could be spins, lead changes, extended lopes, extended trots, jogs, and some have trail poles. Basically the class is a little bit reining, a little bit trail, a little bit horsemanship, and a little bit western pleasure all rolled into one.
Who can show in the class?
Is your horse a little fast for the Western Pleasure or a little small for the Hunter Under Saddle? Do you have a Western Rider, Reiner or Trail horse that you would like to show in another event? Then this class is for you!
