Usually a club will use another Assoc. rules, like the APHA uses ASHA rules for their ranch horse division.
You can look and see maybe whose rules they are using, if in fact they are using another assoc. rules.
I have found if they want to truly see a sliding stop the pattern will call for it.

I hope you go, I found the people to be great and it is very low key compared to a NRHA show. The ones I go to have a trail class, pleasure and cow working, it gives your horse plenty of things to do. You can enter them all or just one.

Okay....I may just be too far out in the boonies, but what are ranch shows? We don't have any out here I don't think...

Google "Stock Horse of Texas" or "American Stock Horse Association".

They are fun, they have classes geared more towards ranch horses. Simple reining patterns, extended gaits in the pleasure, rope drags in the trail class and working and/or roping cattle. Not much bling, just working horses or a good gateway for young horses and beginning show folk.

Thanks Cowchick-time is at a premium in the summer, since the season in the north is SO short.....and, when you are the mom.....your horsey stuff comes last, but, I am hoping to put aside at least one weekend for this. I have looked at the other classes, and will probably do anything without a rope. That would be WAY beyond my abilities at this point. I am not good at doing stuff alone, so hoping to find a friend to go. THis show is using the ARHA rules, and even that didn't tell me much. I am pretty flexible and can fly by the seat of my pants pretty much. Plus, I go to have fun, not win at all even if I laugh all the way through, it is all good.
