This year I will be showing Dusty and Rosie at the Oklahoma Foundation Quarter Horse Registry. But, I am going for the versatility saddle on both of them
You have to have a speed event, show event, halter class, and a cow/ranch event.
Dusty will be in:
Speed: Sr. Youth Keyhole
Show: Sr. Youth Western Pleasure
Halter: Youth Geldings All Ages
Ranch: Sr. Youth Handy Ranch
Halter will be a bit hard for Dusty, seeming that there are A LOT of horses in that class, and he is only around 13-14 hands. I will probably enter him in the 2-3 Year Old Geldings Class so the judge sees him more and gets that he is younger than all the others in the Youth halter (he is 3).
Rosie will be in more than likely a lot of classes. But her versatility classes are:
Speed: Sr. Youth Poles
Show: Youth Reining
Halter: Youth Mares All Ages
Ranch: Going to try Working Cow Horse
Same issue with Rosie in halter, except she is 21. Oldest horse at the show. So, I will probably enter her in 11 and Older Mares, for the same reason as Dusty. Only time Rosie has ever placed well in halter is with the judges that look at her teeth.
Then, with Sassy, I am going to try to get her good on the barrel pattern and take her to some rodeos. The Cowboy Churches of Oklahoma are having a rodeo series, and one church asked me to ride for their team:)
If Sassy decides the pattern is not her thing, I'll have no problem taking her off it and maybe trying some sorting. She's only 5, might as well get her seeing lots of things!:)
