All-Around Winners Are Named At the Region 9 Championship
A distinctly western look took over June 5 at the 2016 Merial AQHA Region Nine Championship Show.
The competition concluded with ranch riding, reining, working cow horse, roping and speed events before the naming of the all-around winners in Jackson, Mississippi.
All-around winners in four divisions received a Montana Silversmiths belt buckle from AQHA.
In regional classes throughout the weekend, winners received a belt buckle, second place received a pair of Professional’s Choice Sports Medicine Boots and third place received a Noble Outfitters product.
