A group of fun-spirited ladies have created the Arabian & HA/AA Ranch Riding Jr. Horse Troika to spice up the competition this year prior to the first ever U.S. Nationals Ranch Riding Jr. Horse classes. The Troika consists of three shows all holding Ranch Riding Jr. Horse classes in 2019. The Mayfest Challenge in Texas added Arabian Ranch Riding Jr. Horse and HA/AA Ranch Riding Jr. Horse to their schedule. Both of these classes will award $500 in prize money, sponsored by Sandy Woerle. Mayfest is held May 3-5 at Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth, TX. Not to be outdone, the WW Celebration held annually in September at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, WI., also added $500 to their Arabian and HA/AA Ranch Riding classes. As an added incentive to compete in these classes at the U.S. National Arabian Championships the end of October in Tulsa, OK., there will be a beautiful trophy buckle awarded to the high point winner that attends all three of these shows. Thank you to Kristen Fisher, Patty Liarakos, Donna Wakefield, and Sandy Woerle.
