Houston draws its share of the 4.4 million total registered Quarter Horses to compete in Halter, where the horse’s body condition, fitness, confirmation and overall health is judged; English, where the desired traits of a Hunter-type horse are judged; and Western, which encompasses the traits desired in a Trail, Cutting, or Western Pleasure-type horse. The Quarter Horse is the desired horse to compete on in associations such as the National Cutting Horse Association and the National Reined Cowhorse Association for its athleticism and intelligence.
Youth classes are among the largest in entries and are broken into three age divisions: Novice Youth, 13 & Under and 14-18. High Point horse and rider awards are given in each division. Select Amateur, Novice Amateur, Amateur and Open divisions are awarded High-Points as well as premium added monies in many classes. In the past, awards have included saddles, laptops, horse blankets, halters and saddle pads for all divisions.
