Miscellaneous Updates
Be sure to review the 2018 FQHR Rulebook at fqhr.net. We will show both Level 1 and Level 2 riders in the same Limited Working Cow and Limited Working Ranch classes. Level 2 riders will be judged separately from Level 1 riders. Also note that the two limited classes cannot be used for Amateur Versatility. There will also be no tie out fee charged for those who do not rent stalls. This should be good news for those who cannot spend the entire weekend at the show and want to show in a limited number of classes. There will be one judge at the show and speed classes will follow herd work classes Saturday morning. We are relying heavily on volunteers this year. If you can spare some time to function as scribe, gatekeeper, office help, etc., please volunteer at the show.
Correction to online entry
There is a mistake on the online entry form. Cattle charges do not apply to Open Ranch Riding because there are no cattle used. Any corrections to fees will be made at the show office. The FQHR ranch riding patterns are in the Rule Book at FQHR.net.
Level 2 clarification
Before you panic about the new Level 2 classification in the 2018 rule book, read the book starting on page 44. "Down the fence" or "on the fence" simply means driving the cow to the opposite end of the arena in a controlled manner and boxing it again.
Awards Procedures
There seems to be some erroneous rumors floating around regarding awards. No sponsor ever provided a saddle but rather offered supposed discounts on saddles. The only way for funds to be available to purchase expensive awards is for all members to seek sponsorships. Forms are on our website.
New rules for 2018
The 2018 FQHR rulebook will be followed for OKFQHR shows in 2018. Major changes involve Limited Working Ranch Horse and Limited Working Cow Horse. If you showed in either of these classes since 2016, you now have to turn the cow on the fence in addition to boxing. Check out the new rulebook at FQHR.net.
2018 showbill
