In ranch riding, the horse is judged on its ability to work at a forward, working speed while performing required and optional maneuvers. The ranch riding horse should simulate a horse riding outside the confines of an arena and reflect the versatility, attitude and movement of a working horse.

Judging Rules:

1.The Judge will make every effort to judge rides fairly with the knowledge that there are inherent challenges to judging online shows that make it different from the real-life experience.

2. If the judge determines that the horse appears lame, the judge has the discretionary right to excuse the rider and not continue scoring. The judge will make notes on the score sheet indicating their observations. The Judge’s decision is final.



Class Results:

Class results will be posted on the MHSA webpage and the 1-3 place finishers for each pattern will be notified by email. Your video will not be posted publicly. A Video Release Document must be completed by all participants of the show. Videos of riders that “opt out of video release” will not be shared. Videos of riders that “agree” to video release will only be shared with participants and/or trainers with students competing in the same division (i.e. WVRR Pattern 6) and are for participating riders and trainers to use as a learning/teaching opportunity to better their own horsemanship skills. MHSA will not post videos on social media.
