Two Ranching Heritage-bred horses earned special recognition during the Farnam AQHA Central Level 1 Championship, held April 11-15 in Oklahoma City.

The horses were recognized with custom-embossed leather notebooks.

Ranching Heritage-bred horses are produced by an AQHA Ranching Heritage Breeder. These horses showcase the quality of a good working ranch horse.

Ranching Heritage-bred horses can succeed in many venues. They are also exclusively eligible to compete in the Zoetis Ranching Heritage Challenges.
