Ranch Horse

A ranch horse can be classified as different things but most would agree that the term ranch horse goes out to those horses that have put in hard work on a farm or ranch. They are trained very well to do various tasks from cutting and herding cattle to being able to go for full day trail rides. These horses are adaptable to many different working conditions. Ranch horses are strong minded and bodied horses. Like I said earlier, people can and will classify a ranch horses differently as they preseave them.

The American Ranch Horse Association (ARHA), head-quartered in Kentucky, is a national association that promotes and educates ranch horses and their riders. They supply a competitive yet friendly atmosphere through shows, clinics, trail rides and sales. The breed Associations that are allowed in the ARHA are American Paint Horse, American Quarter Horse, Appaloosa Horse Club, International Buckskin Association (quarter type), Palomino Breeders Horse Association (quarter type), Pinto Horse Association (quarter type) and the American Buckskin Registry Association (quarter type).
