AQHA’s New Class – Ranch Pleasure
I was really intrigued when I heard that AQHA is going to be offering a ranch pleasure class, but what really is ranch pleasure? How is it judged? What is the horse and rider required to do? And what makes it “ranch” pleasure?
Ranch pleasure is a class designed to showcase the movement and versatility of ranch style horses. It will be an open, individually worked, scored class, similar to the ranch riding class in versatility ranch horse competition. This means that the horse and rider enter the pen and compete individually from other horse and rider teams.
