New AWWA Ranch Riding Amateur Derbies Created for 2021!

After the successful debut of the AWWA Ranch Riding Jr. Horse Jackpot, the AWWA Board of Directors decided to continue the jackpot theme with a Ranch Riding AATR Derby Jackpot.  A Ranch Riding Amateur Derby for horses 6 to 8 years old was created to complement the fact that AHA will be holding a Ranch Riding Futurity beginning in 2021.  Rather than having two pots of money going to the Jr. Horses, it was proposed by the AWWA to hold an amateur derby instead.  Scores earned in their Ranch Riding age group classes will be used to determine placings in the Derby.  Horses must be 6 to 8 years old, ridden by an amateur, and entered through the AWWA process.  There will be an AATR Derby for Arabians and Half-Arabian/Anglo-Arabians with $1,000 added in each class.
