(Ability Demonstrated in the Absence of Planning Thoroughly)
KC's Ultimate Ranch Race is designed to test the skill of both horse and rider over a rugged outdoor course
navigating obstacles and performing duties that a cowboy might face in his daily work on a ranch. Exhibitors
will be judged at each obstacle on their horsemanship and their horse's performance, and timed over the entire
course. At designated times, exhibitors may walk the course in order to map out their strategy! Stalls are
available for $20 per day (sawdust included), call or email to reserve your stalls!!

separately. Incentive riders have the opportunity to win both pots! Show committee reserves the right to label
exhibitors as incentive riders. This will be determined at the time of entry.
