Exhibitors can look forward to an expanded offering of American Quarter Horse Association Versatility Ranch Horse classes in 2016. New this year, all AQHA shows can offer one or all seven Versatility Ranch Horse classes along with their regular roster of AQHA show classes.

In VRH competition there are four categories and seven classes: 

  • Category I: VRH ranch riding, VRH ranch trail
  • Category II: VRH ranch reining
  • Category III: VRH ranch cutting, VRH ranch cow work, VRH limited ranch cow work
  • Category IV: VRH ranch conformation

And VRH classes are offered in the following divisions:

  • Open
  • Amateur
  • Youth
  • Cowboy (see Rule SHW552.3)

Whether show management chooses to offer a handful of VRH classes or host a full-fledged VRH event affects the points and awards that exhibitors are eligible to earn.
