The Colorado State University Ranch Horse Versatility Team hosted and competed at this weekend’s Silver Jubilee collegiate and open event.
Members of the team competed individually in ranch horse pleasure, reining, cow work and trail categories.
The Jubilee was sanctioned by the American Stock Horse Association, which included a cow work clinic on Friday with the event judge. Competitors not only had a chance to get pointers, but also improve their cow work skills before Saturday’s competition.
Unlike other events in the industry that require the horse and rider to become more and more specialized such as cutting horse competitions, the ASHA’s mission is to provide opportunities for competitors to highlight the versatility of the working stock horse.
