Ranch Horse Style Class description The purpose of the Ranch Horse Style class is to demonstrate the versatility, attitude & movement of a working horse. This class should show the horse’s ability to work at a forward, working speed while under control by the rider. Light contact should be rewarded and horse does not have to be shown on a full drape of reins. The overall manners & responsiveness of the horse while performing & quality of movement are the primary considerations. The walk, jog & lope will have an emphasis on forward movement, free-flowing, & ground covering for all gaits. Transitions should be performed with smoothness & responsiveness.
