The Running or Timed Event section of the Federation includes 5 set patterns.  Riders run against a time clock with the object to finish with the fastest correct pattern.  An Overturned prop will result in a disqualification.

The Pleasure or Judged Event section of the Federation includes many disciplines covering both Western, English, Racking, and Reining.  These classes are determined by an approved Judge in the proper field.

The Age divisions are a little different from Running to Pleasure.  It is best to check the show schedule to assure the correct age bracket for the class you choose to participate.

The Running events have 5 set with a specific pattern that does not change from the local show to the state show. The Pleasure event patterns can change from local show to state show.  The chosen Judge will determine the patter for the State Show.  The pattern diagram is not shared until state show. 


Eligibility for State Show competition
A rider must be a member in good standing with one of the nine Associations.  The rider would have competed in local shows throughout the year earning points and ranking in the top 6 of their class and specific event.   Their name must be submitted on the Official Rider's list by their club Secretary by the specified deadline  for the current year's state show competition.  The Association President is required to certify in writing that the participant has also competed in 50% of the Associations local points shows.
