America’s Horse, May 6, 2010 – The American Quarter Horse Association has teamed with the Working Ranch Cowboys Association to recognize top horses at WRCA rodeos across the nation.
To honor the contributions ranch horses have made to the heritage of the American Quarter Horse, AQHA is proud to sponsor a special recognition award to the top horse at every WRCA sanctioned rodeo. The special achievement by these top horses will be placed on the horse’s permanent AQHA record.
Since the earliest days of chuck wagons and roundups, the working ranch horse has earned a spot in the history of the American West. No other animal has contributed more to that history than the American Quarter Horse.
