October 14th show Entry Form is now posted under the forms tab,

Be sure to get you entry in by October 9th @ 9pm

ARHVA has kept our entry fees below our cost for the past few years, subsidizing your entry fee with our sponsorship money to give you, our members a chance to try our shows.

This year we are adjusting our fees to reflect the true costs of hosting our shows. If we receive more sponsorship than we expect we will add more to our purses as the year progresses.

Entry fees this year will be $275 for our Novice Amateur, Limited Amateur and Limited Open Divisions.

The Open and Amateur Divisions entry fees will be $325. Youth Entry remains at $75.

We would appreciate any sponsorship our members could help us find and your support to those sponsors.

Thank you for all of your support.

Show season is just around the corner. A lot of people are worried about having to rope a cow.

Guess what, if you're an entry level Novice Amateur, or a Limited Amateur you DO NOT rope the cow. The only roping would be in the trail and roping the dummy at a stand still. You are not Judged on your roping skills only the horse is on how quiet they stand while you do this maneuver.


***Now listen up Amateur riders you now have the option of roping the cow or circling the cow. This is new this year.***

Limited Open and Open are the only divisions that have to rope the cow.

Any questions, pop us a line on FB or at ranchhorseversatility@gmail.com
