Ranch Trail

This class, modeled on the Versatility Ranch Horse ranch trail class, tests the ability of an American Quarter Horse to negotiate obstacles that might commonly be found on ranches. Maneuvers include riding over obstacles, opening and closing hinged gates, riding across bridges, backing, sidepasses and dragging objects.  Horses cannot cross-enter regular AQHA trail classes if they are entered in ranch trail at the same show regardless of division.
