Each of the 5 Classes will be run as a separate event with Championship placings and awards given.

Ranch Trail and Ranch Riding will be run back to back. (Each contestant rides trail class and then his/her riding pattern.) Those participating in just Ranch Trail will follow those participating in both Trail and Riding. Those participating in just Ranch Riding will follow those just in Ranch Trail.

Entries for the Ranch Horse Versatility will close 30 minutes prior to the start of the first Class.

Entries for the individual classes by those not competing in all 5 classes will be closed at the beginning of the class prior to the one being entered.


All divisions will run concurrently in each of the 5 classes.

Judging will follow AQHA Versatility Ranch Horse rules with exceptions noted below.

Classes open to all breeds and grade horses.

No horses less than three years of age may be exhibited. Exception – 2 year olds may show in the conformation class.

ANY AGE HORSE may be shown in bridle (one handed) or snaffle bit or hackamore (two handed) . 

 

RANCH HORSE VERSATILITY POINTS
Points will be awarded based on the final placing of all eligible horses (those entering all 5 classes in any division).  To be eligible for points for the Versatility Ranch Horse Non Pro, Youth and Green Championship titles, one rider/one horse must enter all five classes in one division.  If showing in the Open Division one horse/any rider must enter all five classes in that division. If one rider is showing more than one horse, additional rider/riders may help in Ranch Riding and Ranch Conformation classes. Credits will be applied per class according to the placing received based on the number of horses competing (for the versatility title) in that particular class.  Versatility horses competing will be awarded one credit for each versatility horse placing below them, plus one additional credit.  After totaling credits, the horse receiving the highest number of credits will be awarded the Ranch Horse Versatility Championship title in that division. There will be a Championship and Reserve Championship title in each of the four divisions.  Number of places paid back will be determined by the number of entries in each division. If a versatility entry does not complete all 5 events, his placings will be removed from all versatility point calculations. His placings for individual class awards remain intact.

 Ties in the final placing for the Versatility Ranch Class will be broken by the highest placing horse in the Working Cowhorse Class.

RANCH SORTING
Ranch sorting is a timed event class consisting of two riders with the objective of sorting ten head of cattle from one pen into another in a designated sequence. The team that sorts all ten head in the correct order with the fastest time will be declared the winner. You may participate on any number of teams. If the team members are in different divisions, say one NP and 1 Open rider, the higher division will be used (Open)

 

 (a) The basic concept of ranch sorting is that there are ten numbered cattle, 0-9, and two unnumbered cattle for a total 12 head at the beginning of a run behind a foul line in an arena with two people mounted on the other side of the foul line.


 (b) Ranch sorting will take place between two pens of approximately equal size.  Recommended sorting area to be 50' - 60' in diameter with no 90 degree corners, i.e. 60' round pen or octagonal 'stop sign' design.

 

 (c) The start foul line will be recommended as a 12' - 16' opening between the two pens.

 

 (d) There will be a 90 second clock. Time will continue until all cattle are sorted or the time limit is reached.

 

 (e) A lap timer or stopwatch is to be used in sorting classes to eliminate ties only. As clarification, the timer will be utilized ONLY in the case of a situation where a tie (or ties) occurs, e.g., in a situation where a team sorts 8 head and has a time of 75 seconds with a lap time of 64.32, while another team sorts 10 head in 68.32  seconds, clearly the 10 head team will be in the lead. The  timer will then be used only to break ties of all the 8 head runs in that go. Also, for breaking ties with multiple go rounds, the  time will be the determining factor and eliminate the ties by setting the order of combined times for placing purposes.
 

(f) There will be a minimum of one judge for sorting, to be positioned evenly with the foul line.

 

 (g) All cattle will be bunched on the cattle side of the gate within the designated area before the time begins. At the conclusion of each run, the judge will designate the need to bunch cattle.

 

 (h) The judge will raise the flag to signal when the arena is ready. The flag will drop when the nose of the first horse crosses the start/foul line and the announcer will provide the number to be sorted first. The riders will be given their number instantly. Any delay in crossing the foul line may result in a 'no-time' for the team.

 

 (i) All cattle must have legible back or neck numbers. The cattle are sorted in order. If any part of a numbered cow crosses the start/foul line prior to its correct order, then the team receives a no-time. If any part of a sorted cow re-crosses the start/foul line the team will be disqualified. If any part of any unnumbered cow crosses the foul line before the tenth cow is cleanly sorted, it will result in a no-time.

 

 (j) The order of sorting is determined by the picking of a random number by the announcer/timer and then that cow must be sorted first. For instance, if 5 is drawn as the first number, 5 is sorted first, then cow 6 must be sorted, 7, 8, 9, 0, 1 and so on. A cow is considered sorted when the entire cow is completely across the start/foul line.

 

 (k) If a numbered cow jumps any fence and either leaves the arena or ends up in the opposite pen, but did not pass through the gate, it will result in a re-ride for that team at the end of the herd, (assuming it was not caused by roughing), and time cannot be improved.

 

 (l) Should a herd be numbered incorrectly or have too many non-numbered cattle, the team(s) may receive a re-ride.
