Cheer On Or Ride In The Versatility Ranch Horse Show
This weekend, July 13-14, people in the Ardmore, Oklahoma area have the chance to watch and participate in the Versatility Ranch Horse Show for Every Breed & Any Level Rider at Johnson Performance Horses! As the title mentions, anyone can participate, no matter what horse you ride or how long you have been riding. There’s no excuse not to come out!
The show is part of the Summer Buckle Series, which began in May, and ends with the July 13 weekend. That means this is your last chance to get a piece of the action!
This weekend is also the perfect event to get yourself familiar with JPH and all they have to offer, including AQHA, VRH & All Breed classes.
On Saturday, Rebecca Halvorson will judge the different categories, which include Jackpot Ranch Cutting, AQHA Cutting, AQHA Versatility Ranch Horse (VRH) Ranch Cutting, AQHA Working Cow Horse, AQHA Boxing, AQHA Ranch Riding, and AQHA Reining.
On Sunday, Wayne Halvorson will judge the covered arena categories, which include Oklahoma Stock Horse Association (OkSHA)/AQHA VRH Working Cow Horse and OkSHA/VRH Reining. Rebecca Halvorson will judge the outdoor arena categories, which are OkSHA Pleasure/VRH RR and OkSHA/VRH Trail.
On Friday, there are paid warm-ups, cattle works, and clinic sessions, and those need to be scheduled by calling 580-276-0662.
The Johnson Performance Horses facility encompasses many different features. The Show Grounds, which is set up to host events, shows, and clinics, offers ample space to ride. The Show Barn, which is the main barn, has stall mattresses inside the large stalls for the comfort of the animals. There’s also a Covered Arena, Jumping Arena, and cross country elements to teach your horses a variety of skills.
