Ranch Horse Show

Who here shows at ranch shows/ ARHA shows? My trainer told me about a show in September that I would like to go to. I want to show in the pleasure, halter, showmanship, trail, and hopefully reining. My question is though what should I expect at this kind of show? What kind of clothes/ equiptment can I use/ not use (specifically rules about silver)? And also any other advice for these kinds of shows

I have shown in ranch horse shows but not ARHA.
They are fun and are usually laid back. Don't get carried away with silver and bling. Good working tack and regular long sleeved shirt, jeans, hat, chaps/chinks optional.

Never went to one that had showmanship?
Usually have cattle classes(ranch cutting, taking one down the fence and roping) along with reining, trail, pleasure and halter.

I am supposed to go to one August 2nd. This one goes by the AQHA rules and patterns. So, I am trying to find the patterns online. So far, I have not been able to find the Ranch reining pattern 1. I know the NRHA ones, but I understand these are different.
OP-I have heard they are pretty casual, not blingy at all. Just nicely groomed and clean nice clothes, boots and tack. In fact, I looked at the AQHA rules and banded manes and hoof polish are not allowed.

Thanks for the advice, I don't know what rules this show goes by as my trainer only mentioned it in passing and we have not had a chance to discuss it yet

F n B, far as I know, it's not called ranch reining in AQHA, I think it's the working ranch horse patterns which might be why you can't find it online. I attached pics of the #1 working ranch horse pattern below.
