Ranch Riding

Ranch riding events were originally created to help showcase the versatility, attitude, and movement of a working ranch horse.

We work with ranch riding world champion riders Bud Lyon and Cody Crow who help you perfect your ranch riding horsemanship and improve your performance in the arena.

National Cutting Horse Association Hall of Fame riders Winston Hansma and R.L. Chartier demonstrate the fundamentals you need to have before ever putting your horse on a cow and explain the importance of including dry work into your daily riding routine. They’ll then show you how to work your horse on live cattle and go over the tack and gear you need to have to compete in this event.
