Once again, AQHA is offering competitors the opportunity to enter online for Battle in the Saddle.

Once again, the American Quarter Horse Association is offering competitors the opportunity to enter online for Battle in the Saddle, July 3-8 at State Fair Park in Oklahoma City. Battle in the Saddle is presented by RFD-TV.

Owners and exhibitors can visit www.battleinthesaddle.com, where they will find online and downloadable entry forms, and the website will walk users through how to enter the show. Entries for cowboy mounted shooting and ranch sorting will be handled through their respective associations. All other entries will be submitted to AQHA by either downloading the form and sending it in, or by use of the online entry system.

This year’s Battle in the Saddle will feature versatility ranch horse competition, cutting, roping, cowboy mounted shooting, barrel racing, working cow horse, ranch sorting, ranch pleasure, a ranch remuda challenge and the third annual World’s Greatest Horseman Shootout.

Battle in the Saddle will also host the 2012 Merial Ranch Sorting National Championships.

In order to involve as many alliance events as possible, AQHA welcomed the Ranch Sorting National Championships as a new alliance partner. As a result, RSNC members who compete on American Quarter Horses have the chance to earn points and qualify for both an AQHA world championship show and the RSNC National Finals during the same class.

Battle in the Saddle will also host the World’s Greatest Horseman Shootout, which puts one horse, one rider and one bridle together for four exciting western performance events. The open riders must exhibit their American Quarter Horses in four events: herd work, similar to cutting; rein work; steer stopping; and fence work.
