DON'T FORGET, WE ALSO HAVE GAMES

For our first year of putting on the Expo, we are subject to time constrictions, so the class list is a shortened version of what we hope to be able to have in the future with the success of the expo this year. Our goal is to expand the class list and have many more classes for Mustangs, Appendix Mustangs and Burros in future Expos.

Show Management Software donated by

See "Show Rules" for complete rules and guidelines.
Note: Rules Have Been Amended, as of June 25, 2003, so please look!

Please note that non-freeze branded and Appendix Horses or Mules may only show in those classes that are designated for that type of animal being shown - "OPEN" classes are for freeze-branded or range-bred animals only, but all levels of experience (green through pro)

Please also note that Burros may be shown in the In-Hand or Mounted Trail right along with the horses. They are subject to the same rules as the horses/mules, but they can compete in those classes if they want to. It will not be separate ribbons, but instead being judged with the horses and mules.
 

Note To Show Entrants: If you can't find what you need on this website, or still have questions about showing, classes, etc.
