June 22-27- More than 500 horses and 3,600 entries are expected to pack the fifth annual American Ranch Horse Association World Show, to be held at Miller Coliseum in Murfreesboro, Tenn., June 22 to 27, 2009. Approximately $48,000 in awards is up for grabs, including cash awards, tack, equipment and trophy buckles. High-point champions in the three divisions—Open, Amateur and Youth—win a saddle from Reinsman and a custom Lone Star Silversmith trophy buckle; high-point reserve winners will receive a headstall from Reinsman and a custom Lone Star Silversmith buckle.

All ARHA-registered horses are eligible to compete in the 104 cattle work, performance and conformation classes at the World Show. The deadline for pre-entries and stall reservations is May 22.

New at the competition this year is a Select Ranch Riding class for riders 50 and older. The ARHA 3-Year-Old Ranch Horse Challenge carries a $1,000 added bonus, and the Ranch Riding and Reining Sweepstakes classes have a payback of 50 percent of entries plus $300; winners also receive a Cruisin’ Cooler from Tub’s Tack.

The ARHA Ranch Horse Versatility competition will be offered for Open, Amateur and Youth exhibitors who enter five classes: Conformation, Ranch Riding, Trail, Working Ranch Horse and Ranch Cutting. Each division winner will receive a custom Lone Star Silversmith trophy buckle and a show pad from Diamond Wool Saddle Pads; reserve winners will receive a custom Lone Star Silversmith buckle.

World Show judges are David Terrell, of Millington, Tenn.; Gene Ray Stewart, of Owenton, Ky.; Curt Summers, of Litchfield, Ill.; and Dennis Brown, of Booneville, Ind.
